Default Please help with display problem

Hi all,

I have recieved my new Dell Latitude C840 and have installed Suse 8.1 with no problems. I just cant get the 3D acceleration to work. I have looked on various web sites who all point to downloading the

NVIDIA_kernel*rpm
and
NVIDIA_GLX*rpm files.

I have downloaded them and installed them without an issue. I have loaded up the XF86Config file and changed the nv option to nvidia. When I reboot the machine it basically doesn't work. Can anyone please help.

I attache my XF86Config and the output of the 3Ddiag
