The 'not configured' bit doesn't matter for X support.  I use it all
the time.  IIRC, agp can't be configured into the kernel for AGP to
work.  I've got an AGP video card in the system, have had since January,
and it works fine.  Unfortunately, you asked when I can't check, I'm
redeploying the system, and it's currently wiped.

The NVidia ethernet does not work last I knew.  Everything else works fine
for me, although I don't have any firewire or USB 2.0 things to connect,
so their status is unknown.

I've been using the motherboard since I committed this stuff in January,
I like it a lot.  I am using -current, and not a release, I'm not sure
what the status is in 1.6-release branch.
