you can't use both the integrated and AGP graphics together...unless you have a dual out card or SLI board..then it's not possible

Integrated video runs on the AGP bus. Install an AGP card and you can use either or. Install a PCI or PCI-e video card with onboard AGP video and you can.

XP does not allow direct hardware access. So, no dos programs and no dual video standard. You would need a mobo with dual PCIe.
