Default Re: GeForce 6150(GA-K8N51PVMT-9) 1.0-8178? Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel mod

I found this bug posting which was helpful.
http://bugs.opensolaris.org/bugdatab...bug_id=6376708
These add support for these PCI ids/devices:
+ { 0x10DE0047, "GeForce 6800 GS" },
+ { 0x10DE0095, "GeForce 7800 SLI" },
+ { 0x10DE01D1, "GeForce 7300 LE" },
+ { 0x10DE01D6, "GeForce Go 7200" },
+ { 0x10DE01D7, "GeForce Go 7300" },
+ { 0x10DE01D8, "GeForce Go 7400" },
+ { 0x10DE01DA, "Quadro NVS 110M" },
+ { 0x10DE01DB, "Quadro NVS 120M" },
+ { 0x10DE01DC, "Quadro FX 350M" },
+ { 0x10DE01DE, "Quadro FX 350" },
+ { 0x10DE01DF, "GeForce 7300 GS" },
+
+ { 0x10DE0398, "GeForce Go 7600" },
+ { 0x10DE0399, "GeForce Go 7600 GT"},
+ { 0x10DE039A, "Quadro NVS 300M" },
+ { 0x10DE039C, "Quadro FX 550M" },
+
+ { 0x10DE0298, "GeForce Go 7900 GS" },
+ { 0x10DE0299, "GeForce Go 7900 GTX" },
+ { 0x10DE029A, "Quadro FX 2500M" },
+ { 0x10DE029B, "Quadro FX 1500M" },
+
+ { 0x10DE0240, "GeForce 6150" },
+ { 0x10DE0241, "GeForce 6150 LE" },
+ { 0x10DE0242, "GeForce 6100" },
+ { 0x10DE0244, "GeForce Go 6150" },
+ { 0x10DE0247, "GeForce Go 6100" },

Now being certain which nvidia device was my video I tried again to add the driver:
unix% su
unix% tcsh
unix% sh NVIDIA-Solaris-x86-1.0-8178.run
unix% /usr/bin/nvidia-xconfig
unix% update_drv -a -i '"pci10de,240"' nvidia
unix% reboot -- -r

* The X-server can not be started on display :0...
unix% /usr/bin/nvidia-SunOS-bug-report.sh

reading the nvidia-johnny5-bug-report.log once again I find:
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module! Please ensure
...

Which leaves me no choice but to default back to the "vesa" driver.
unix% cd /etc/X11
unix% sed "s/nvidia/vesa/" xorg.conf>xorg.conf_vesa
unix% cp xorg.conf_vesa xorg.conf
unix% reboot

Am I missing some steps?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
