Well I added those lines and still no xvmc.  I actually did a complete 
reinstall of the system just to make sure I did not have anything else 
screwed up.  Installed the current nvidia drivers from nvidia just to be 
safe.  Everything else is from atrpms.

I will see what I can do to find another xorg.conf that would work for me.
