Here are the "Device" and "Screen" sections I have.  I'm not currently 
using svideo on my GF4 card, but this is the config that worked quite 
well when I was.  This configuration was for svideo out ONLY.  I did 
not have a monitor connected.

Section "Device"
         Identifier  "Videocard0"
         Driver      "nvidia"
         VendorName  "Videocard vendor"
         BoardName   "NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX (generic)"
         Option "TVStandard"   "NTSC-M"
         Option "TVOutFormat"  "SVIDEO"
         Option "ConnectedMonitor" "TV"
         Option "TVOverScan" "0.7"
         Option "NoLogo" "TRUE"
         Option "HWCursor" "TRUE"
         Option "RederAccel" "FALSE"

Section "Screen"
         Identifier "Screen0"
         Device     "Videocard0"
         Monitor    "Monitor1"
         DefaultDepth    24
         SubSection "Display"
                 Virtual 800 600
                 Depth    24
                 Modes "800x600"
