NVidia drivers installed, but won't load

I've installed the latest NVidia linux drivers, with kernel 2.6.6. They installed fine, I used the option -k=2.6.6 and had no problems. I edited the XF86Config file so it loades the driver "nvidia," not "nv." When I start X, the NVidia logo doesn't show up. Also, in the XFree86.0.log file, it says:
(II) Module nv: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
"(II) NV: driver for NVIDIA chipsets: RIVA 128, RIVA TNT, RIVA TNT2, Vanta,..."
"(II) NV(0): Initializing int10"
among several other "(II) NV(0):" things.

So it seems like its not using XF86Config, but in the log it says "(==) Using config file: '/etc/X11/XF86Config.'" I can't seem to figure out why its still using the "nv" driver and not the new "nvidia" driver.

Any help is very much appreciated.

Problem solved, he upgraded with swaret and didnt realize it installed Xorg, so it was the wrong configuration file.
