Default Help needed with XF86Config-4 file

I finally installed the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-5332 drivers (downloaded from www.minion.de) for my SK8v/Athlon FX-51 running Mandrake 10, beta 2, but can't seem to configure my XF86Config-4.

If anybody can identify what I'm doing wrong, I'd really appreciate it.

Below is my XF86Config-4 file and the error log generated when I try to start X.

[Full files attached.]
