@bugsbunny I assumed that /etc/X11/xorg.conf is necessary because removing it enables the default driver. I found that the above minimal file did not work in a recent installation of Squeeze but the /etc/X11/xorg.conf resulting from nvidia-xconfig did.
It is necessary, as you say, since otherwise the default driver is used. In most cases the minimum config above will work. In some it won't, which is why I said until/unless. But starting from the minimum won't hurt. If the minimum doesn't work then you can either look at the logs and try to figure out what you need, or you can try running xconfig. Back when xorg.conf was necessary and had a lot of entries xconfig was needed much more often, but the autodetect stuff tends to work in the majority of cases nowadays.
