Question GLX won't stay loaded in xorg.conf in Fedora Core 5


Hey all, I seem to have another GLX problem. I have successfully enabled 3D acceleration for nVidia. I changed in xorg.conf

Code:
Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "nv"
	VendorName  "Videocard vendor"
	BoardName   "nVidia Corporation NV5M64 [RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro]"
EndSection

Code:
Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "nvidia"
	VendorName  "Videocard vendor"
	BoardName   "nVidia Corporation NV5M64 [RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro]"
EndSection
Every time I restart my computer, I get an error at the graphical boot screen saying that it can't find some nvidia kernel or something, and it says OK when disabling GLX also. I then look at the xorg.conf file and notice how the driver says nv instead of nvidia. I am able to edit the file as root and change it. Then I logoff and login again and GLX is enabled once more. Can somebody help me make the driver stay as nvidia? Thank you.

Have you installed the latest driver from nVidia? You can get it from http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp

Yes, I have installed the latest Legacy driver from nVidia. I still don't know why xorg.conf keeps reverting back to the old configuration.
