User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 4.0; T312461)

Description of problem:
After installing the new kernel with up2date, I rebooted the machine.  The X 
server failed to start, and gave me the error messages about agpgart and fglrx 
modules failing to load.

If I go back to the previous kernel on boot (using grub), which is kernel 
2.4.20-19.9, everything works OK.

Under the new kernel, I can get the x server working with the default 
configuration tool which automatically probes my hardware.  The problem is, it 
doesn't detect that I have two monitors.  I end up with the second monitor 
looking like a clone of the first one, rather than having the two act as one 
big screen.

I tried rebuilding the XF86Config-4 file using the fglrxconfig tool that comes 
with the ATI Fire GL 8800 driver, but when I re-boot, I get the same error. 
(agpgart and fglrx modules fail to load)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade to the 2.4.20-20.9 kernel from 2.4.20-19.9 using up2date
2. reboot

Actual Results:  The X server fails to load with an error message that agpgart 
and fglrx kernel modules fail to load

Expected Results:  The X server should have started normally
