Read the documentation on Nvidia's website.
You can either use agpgart+NVdriver(nvgart) _or_ NVdriver. If you choose
the first, you'll use Option "NVAgp" "1". The latter, Option
"NVAgp" "2". By default it's set to 3 even if you have no agp option
specified in your XF86Config-4, which means to try 2 first and then upon
failure 1, then fail completely.
In other words, you _must_ use NVdriver no matter what if you plan on
using Nvidia's binary-only drivers.

Which makes sense, since it's documented in the README in both text and
pdf format that you should use the binary-only drivers for lcd support.
