Default AMD-64 kernel Configuration micro-Tutorial.

This brief guide is applicable to all AMD-64 chipsets
and to all linux distributions.

Nevertheless I have only confirmed it on an ASUS K8V.
These options apply for both 32bit(x86) and 64bit(x86-64) drivers.
The kernel used was linux-2.6.5. vanilla.

These are the ONLY menuconfig options you NEED to have compilled into your kernel for the nvidia drivers to work.
