i have installed the nvidia beta driver, and this aiglx tutorial link (http://clunixchit.blogspot.com/2006/10/fc6-aiglx-with-nvidia-beta-driver.html) wants me to add some things to the "Module" section of my xorg.conf, only there isn't a "Module" section in my xorg.conf, and adding one causes x-server to not work. (also, the xorg.conf seems too short)

please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello:
Are you using FC6 or FC5 or ?
You should probably un-install the Beta Driver as the 1.0.9629 has been released.
I have no idea what method you used to install the driver, however, you will have the best results using the rpms from either livna or freshrpms.
yum --enablerepo=livna install kmod-nvidia
If you do not have the livna repo installed then please have a look here to do so : http://rpm.livna.org/
Just do not enable both fresrpms and livna.

Then have a look here as to what to add to our /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to enable compiz
