I clicked on the link above and I'm reading it thus:

    Normally, Axel's nvidia rpms trigger the creation of an xorg.conf
    file for use with the nvidia driver; it based on the one created
    by the installer. However, if you have chosen "minimal" when you
    installed the distro then the out-of-the box config is so minimal
    that the auto-creation step fails. The following work-around will
    take care of this problem:

I have based the above on the explanation on Mr. Wilson's website but  
edited slightly "for clarity"; so you should consider the above to be  
based on my interpretation of what he's saying. But if I _am_ reading  
that correctly, he's only telling you to add those sections if you  
don't already have them in your xorg.conf file.
