You can probably still switch to other virtual consoles, or telnet or
ssh into the machine.

On advice from here and other places, I did the following:
1. Enable agp in the kernel:
agp* at pchb?
2. Make the device node and symlink for it in /dev:
cd /dev; MAKEDEV agp0
3. for X, turn off int-10 use (not sure if that is really still needed
actually, I'll try that later), in /etc/X11/XF86Config:
Option "NoInt10" <--
4. Make sure only the 1024x768 resolution of the laptop display is used:
Modes "1024x768" <--
