      Following is the text of the file - make sure to change the driver
      back to nv until you update the nvidia drivers (then make it nvidia
      again). Except for that change, this is the exact XF86Config-4 file
      that mdk 9.1 generated based on my system, which is:
      I8200
      1GB RAM, 64MB GF440Mobile, US Keyboard, I use a main screen config of
      1600x1200.

      Hope this helps.
