Configuring video card?

Well I just ran the the cat /proc/nv/card0 command and found out I dont have Sideband or Fastwrites enabled is there anyway I can enable them for my GF pro?
Also it states the only two rates as 1x and 2x. How do i enable 4x? Ive read some other forums and they talked about changing some info in the registry file but I dont have the registry file because I installed my drivers by rpm. The tarballs just wouldnt work for me. Any info would be appreciated.

Read the installation of NVIDIA drivers from their website, it explains various options, this options are going into /etc/X11/XF86Config or XF86Config-4 (depends on what version of XFree86 you use if it is 4.x then the first one with -4), see if it helps.
