Default SimplyMEPIS 3.3, 6600GT, driver or hardware issue?

Thanks for viewing.

Been trying to get my 6600GT working properly, having trouble. I installed the 1.0-7174 drivers (nvidia-glx) via APT-GET which said it was successful. I edited my XF86Config-4 file adding a # to Load "GLcore" and "Load dri" and setting the driver to "nvidia", but no go: always a no screens found.

What I'm wondering is if it's a problem with hardware detection.

A64 2800+
MSI 6600GT
DFI LP III
(kernel 2.6.10--all dependencies installed)

All instructions to install I've read say change driver "nv" to "nvidia". I've never had "nv", always "vesa", from which I gather it doesn't know I have an nvidia card; so when I change my settings obviously I'd get a no screens found (I'm a newb, so it's just rationale, no knowledge to base it on). Nothing is mentioned of my 6600GT in my XF86Config-4 file which is included:

Did you try loading the nvidia module in advance (modprobe nvidia) before starting X? (when driver=nvidia)
