afaik, it doesn't matter what it labels your Device, as long as it is the same in all places the label is used. All that matters is that your nvidia module is loaded, and the driver will take it from there. From the commandline, what you should do is login and type
and see if x starts...if it doesn't not it will clearly tell you why. Alot of times I find after first installing the driver I have to start kdm or whatever login manager once since the first time after install it defaults to runlevel 3...but that was just my experience.
Continuing with the thread...so are we saying that
when people are talking about a resolution of 1024x768x32 they set the Depth to 24? Is that the short of it?
