The latest x86-64.org CVS kernel supports the Nforce3 AGP bridge,
or your can use a
newer rpm from ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/people/aj/Kernel-AMD64/

If AGP still doesn't work try booting with try_unsupported=1 on the
kernel command line (not module command line). This should work
on most K8 chipsets (except possible the Nforce3, but we fixed that)
