Don't know if it can be done, but does anyone know how to make your onboard
video work at the same time as an agp video card?

I don't think so. The onboard video uses the agp bus. Since the agp slot was only designed for one video device, once you add an agp card, the onboard video disables itself.

Not sure about an agp card but i know for a fact you can use a pci card along with the onboard grapchics in most PC's.

Thats becuase on older motherboards the onboard graphics uses the PCI bus.
