Interesting. I don't deny that you might be having an issue, but without more info it's hard to know what might be happening with your system. The biggest factor is whether you're running a self-compiled kernel, and if so, what options, etc you chose. I know that when the kernel first switched to 4k stacks some time ago, it broke the nvidia drivers (along with a lot of other stuff) but nvidia stepped up and updated their drivers fairly quickly, so that shouldn't be an issue if you're trying current drivers.
There are few things to check, i.e. whether you're using nvidia agp, or the in-kernel agp, if your BIOS setting for agp speed matches what your kernel is trying to use, whether your hardware is listed in the blacklist in the nvidia-installer-readme, which is BTW a very helpful doc if you're having any issues.
You might try also posting in the nvidia forums, they have some good linux people and are responsive.
