I used to use the Nvidia module but it seemed to break with every new kernel. Plus it 
made recompiling the kernel more complicated because it had to be reinstalled with 
every new kernel and it was the only module I used so it when I stopped using it I 
could do away with all the module loading options in the kernel and I no longer need 
to install module init tools. I don't have a TV attached to the computer or need any 
of the other fancy features the Nvidia module is supposed to provide. Life's a lot 
simpler without it, in my opinion, it's more trouble than it's worth. But as always, 
Your milage may vary
