I'm sure he's using the module-init-tools, he wouldn't be able to load modules at all on Linux 2.6.0-test* kernels if he wasn't. The transition from the old modutils should be relatively painless, however, depmod/modprobe should be able to find installed kernel modules without additional magic. The translation of modules.conf to the new modprobe.conf can be a little tricky for certain constructs, but the conversion script shipped with the module-init-tools should work fine for the entry pertainting to the NVIDIA module; either way, difficulties with modprobe.conf shouldn't affect explicit loading of the nvidia.ko kernel module with modprobe.
