Default F9/KDE4.0/Nvidia not running/Dual monitors ?

I've been running dual monitors with nvidia since FC4.

I'm running F9, KDE 4.0 and an nvidia card. Dual monitors worked great
in F8. My second monitor isn't working in F9. I seem to have the
nvidia module installed, but yet I am getting a failure message on the
boot screen.

yum list *nvidia*
Loaded plugins: priorities, refresh-packagekit
Installed Packages
kmod-nvidia.i686 169.12-8.lvn8

kmod-nvidia-2.6.24.5-85.fc8.i686 169.12-7.lvn8

xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i386 169.12-1.lvn8
installed

# /sbin/lsmod | grep nvidia
<nothing>

Why is the nvidia module throwing an error during boot ? How do I fix
it ?

Thanks

The page, itself, uses this URI:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Bugs/Common#Proprietary_.28third-party.29_video_drivers
The URI mentioned above doesn't point to any anchor on the page.
