Got my nVidia driver working properly!

For a few days I was stumped why my system wasn't able to boot into X. So through text mode, I used apropos to fim the prog vim, a text editor. And in the readme for the nvidia drivers I found the file /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XF86Config, and a "nvidia" tag that needed to be there. So, using vim, I went into XF86Config and changed it from the default "nv" to "nvidia" and it works beautifully! Pure OpenGL graphics! I guess the installation had problems, but I sure fixed 'em!

Tux racer is cool
