Default nvidia module doesn't demand load

I loaded a new system and have installed kernel to 2.6.1.

I am using module-init-tools 3.0-pre9.

Here are the relevant lines in my modprobe.conf file:

alias char-major-195-* nvidia
options nvidia NVreg_EnableAGPFW=1 NVreg_EnableAGPSBA=1

I have also tried:

alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia

The nvidia module never loads upon X loading, however, if I perform and "modprobe nvidia" and then start X, all is fine.

This isn't the first time I have done this. I have two boxes set up like this (except the kernel is 2.6.0-testX and they work fine.
