[Wolves] AGP cards

The only way you can find out is that there is another slot on the
motherboard, what looks like slightly offset from the other PCI slots,
usually near the middle of the motherboard.  It is sometimes coloured
brown, some newer ones comes in different colours (different speeds of
AGP, like x2, x4, x8 also different voltages).

Anyway, if you see that slot in the middle of the motherboard, chances
are it is AGP compliant motherboard.  You can slot in pretty much any
AGP card, but mind you, you need to find out the AGP's speed limit
(x2, x4, etc) on the motherboard.

If you don't know the the AGP's speed limit, one look at the name of
the motherboard and look it up on the website, www.google.com and
enter "<name of motherboard> specifications".  Hopefully, it will crop
up something and scroll down the specs and you'll find out the speed
of this motherboard's AGP (only if there is such a slot!).

Any problems, let me know.
