XF86Config for GeForce 4 MX Series v.2-E

I Guys,

I have a GeForce 4 MX and a ViewSonic E70 Monitor.
Could suggest what is the best XFree86 config file for this devices?
Or at least I can get it from my installation.

If you send an example, That would be nice!

do this (as root) (when X isn't running)

cd /usr/X11R6/bin


it will ask you stuff based on your keyboard, mouse, monitor, video card etc. etc.

They are fairly straight forward. You can stick with the defaults for the most part. And after you do this start x and then go download the Nvidia drivers from and follow the directions to install those.
