Maybe we should have a package nvidia-for-noobs that enables the driver
by default because asking the user the write a command line to simply
activate the driver is definitively NOT Ubuntu-spirit. If someone don't
want the driver enabled he can do "nvidia-glx-config disable" anyway...
but basic users just wants the driver to work, that's all...

Maybe a debconf key set by default to TRUE which ask if we want to
enable the driver can do the trick, experts would disable if they want
and noobs will just accept default setting...
