As far as I remember, I never wrote any configuration as user. I edited 
as root the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf and wrote driver "nvidia" instead of 
old "nv" and also generated some modelines using web-based generators. 
Restarted X and everything worked fine.

I never used nvidia-settings utility. There is necessary change driver 
name and that's it!

Certainly if you need, you may want to use some other parameters. They 
can be read from nVidia documents:
http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-9746/README/chapter-03-section-02.html


Config options:
http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-9746/README/appendix-d.html

E.g. I like to use some more parameters e.g. to hide boot logo, etc.


But check also your driver version - there might be differences with 
earlier versions.
