[mythtv-users] Why won't this Xorg.Conf load?

I'd been running MythTV .19 of FC2 for ages but had to bite the bullet
and upgrade to .20.2 in order to transition to the new television
programming listing service.

Since I was dropping a new hard drive into the same system FC2 was
running on and installing FC6 from scratch, I thought I'd try to be
clever and simply take the Xorg.conf from the old HD and copy it to
/etc/X11 on the new FC6 install and I'd be all set.

With the xorg.conf transplanted from the FC2 install to the FC6, I
reboot, the OS loads and I get a friendly dos screen telling me the
Xserver won't load  (with no information as to why), so obviously I'm
not as smart as I thought :-)

Can anyone tell me why the following Xorg.Conf doesn't like my "new"

I'm running the latest Nvidia drivers under FC6 on an Nvidia FX5200 and
I would like to view the output from the card on my tv via the cards
SVIDEO port.

I know the fx5200 card still works as reconnecting the old FC2 hd and
rebooting loads everything as expected.

Here's the Xorg.conf:

# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool,
# values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual
# (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg

# package.
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
