Default Odd X configuration.

Hi all.
This is my first post so be good to me .

I'm running under ubuntu 6.06, I have installed the official drivers following the guide from above in this forum.

But I find that my X configuration is very strange.
My x server (xorg) has been configurated automaticly with nvidia-xconfig but take a look at my device section
Section "Device"
Identifier "NVIDIA Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200]"
Driver "nvidia"

well I found that every option for the nvidia driver is in the screen section
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "NVIDIA Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200]"
Monitor "SyncMaster"
DefaultDepth 24
Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "True"
Option "RenderAccel" "True"

I've see in other forums that those options goes in the device section and there is no PCI address!!!!
I don't understand.
Is this configuration correct?
thanks anyway.

Either should work fine, although the device section is the more traditional location for those options.
