Default XF86Config not updating

My XF86Config file is not being updated once I install the drivers. I have followed all the instructions in this post, and others like it, but when I get to the step about going into the /etc/X11/XF86Config file I don't know what to do.
I am running RH 8 with a fresh install. This is what my file looks like...

Section "Device"
# no known options
Identifier "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
Driver "vesa"
VendorName "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 16
SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

...there is no driver nv section and the generic drivers still show up.

Nothing unusual happened during the install process and I think I'm comfortable with the whole process to think everything is OK with the install...but...

Any suggestions? If anyone has any ideas or would be willing to show me what that part of the config file should look like that would be great!

BTW, I have a VistionTek 64M Ti4200 card with a 19" ViewSonic Monitor.
