permissions for '/dev/nvidia*' should be 'root.video'
meaning that you just add yourself to the 'video' group, and voila! BUT...
on my box they are 'root.root' as well! I haven't found this to be a problem, however.
If you really need these permissions, put a script in '/etc/init.d', there's
a template init script already in that directory called 'skeleton', you
would only need to fill in the "start" section.
