Problem to install NVIDIA driver


I have problem to install the latest NVIDIA driver. I run sh NVIDIA.... without any problem, after that if i run startx it works well, the system is using nvidia driver. the module nvidia is load. I had in /etc/modprobe.d/, a file nvidia with :

alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia
alias char-major-195 nvidia

But when I restarted my computer, i can't start X. it's due to the fact nvidia isnot loaded.

So how can i automaticaly load this module, I mean, i do'nt want to type manually "modprobe nvidia"
