Default Nvidia fails after reboot

I'm using Ubuntu Dapper. I followed the install instructions listed in the sticky and on the drivers page. I installed the drivers and ran nvidia-xconfig. For some reason, nvidia-xconfig is writing a new xorg.conf file, but puts it in my home directory instead of /etc/X11/. I copied it to /etc/X11 and started the X server. When X comes up, I get an NVIDIA logo page and things seem to be working. I ran glxgears to check OpenGL and this works fine. Oddly, the laptop decides to use the external monitor instead of the main one. When I restart the computer, the x server will not start. I get the following text. I'm not even sure where to start debugging this problem or how to search for topics covering it.
