I am a linux newbie, I have no clue about pretty much everything. I attempted to install the nvidia x86 drivers on my computer and I followed the instructions, including changing the XF86Config file to reflect the new driver.
by changing driver "nv" to driver "nvidia" and adding load "glx", like it said in the installation readme. I then attempted to restart and x server encountered a fatal error and refused to load. I'm not exactly sure how I fixed it, but I am sure that the driver is not loaded. Anyone know what to do?

Type the command lsmod and make sure NVIDIA is listed. If it isn't, run modprobe nvidia and see if it loads. It will probably give you and error code. If it does, please share it with us, if not, just run startx and everything should work.
