Default how to modify XF86Config in RH 9 after installing NVIDIA driver

Thanks to anyone who might be able to offer some help. Maybe there is some "HOWTO" available anywhere.

Here's my question:

I installed the nVIDIA driver 1.0-4363 in RedHat 9. I did read the release 40 notes,
but I can't find how to modify XF86Config.

I tried replacing: load "nv" by: load "nvidia". That failed, so I did:
"modprobe" to actually load the driver.

Now, lsmod says:
nvidia 1672480 0 (unused)

I assume the nvidia driver did load, but something still prevents it from running.

What can I do to correct the situation?

PS: 'Attach file' does not allow me to add more than one file to this thread. I also wanted to enclose XF86Config, but then it takes away the XFree86.0.log. I'd be happy to mail additional info later.
