TNT2 + K6-2 500 (ALI) -> hangs (help!)

Hello all. I've just bought a Guillemot Maxi Gamer Cougar w/TNT2 m64 32Mb TV-Out, and when I put in on my ALI motherboard (Gigabyte GA-5AX) with a K6-2 500, it instantly hangs after power-on.

Most of the times I get a black screen and the HD led keeps on with no activity at all. SOMETIMES the computer starts and when I get W98 running, the entire system hangs after a minute or so... after this I always get blank screen until I power off the entire machine (reset doesn't solve this).

I don't know what to do. I've tried AGP drivers, changing AGP aperture size on BIOS, but nothing works. Do you know if TNT2 has problems with some K6-2 motherboards?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
