Default Re: 280.13 (kind of) installed on Ubuntu Lucid, no run

I did the suggested removals and re-did the install. The nvidia-install.log shows a complete install with no errors. Huzzah!

When I ran System/Administration/Nvidia X Server Settings, I got, "You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server."

I ran nvidia-xconfig as root and got, "VALIDATION ERROR: Data incomplete in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
Device section "Configured Video Device" must have a Driver

I went through xorg.conf and indeed found no "Video Device" section.

What is the "Video Device" section supposed to look like? If anyone can give me the lines I need, I'll manually enter them into the file.

(please see the attached copy of the xorg.conf file)
