I recommend reading or re-reading the "EDITING YOUR XF86CONFIG FILE" section of the readme file posted on the nvidia driver page. It has some good info in it. Browsing other people's attached XF86config files (just look around on this board) and typing "man XF86config" in a console are decent ways of getting familiar with the config file, which you want to do if your new to Linux.
Personal note: Work needs to give me more work! I've spent most of the day reading messages on this board.
