Default Re: ia64 driver for 2.6?

I was abt to compile it using some patch for kernel 2.6. It installed also fine. I have itanium ia-64 box. There to enable the nvidia graphics I changed the primary device to be the nvidia. Now my graphics is not visible. Although it must be smaller problem. I noticed that the nvidia-xconfig didn't install with this package. Its a wonderful exe. Been using it on xw series workstations ( with default installed nvidia cards ).

Is there any such installer with this package which can generate the xorg.conf file ? How can I know my system is taking which graphics ?
