Default no Nvidia drivers option in X setup
I've just installed PcBSD 9.1 32bit as duel-boot with Win7 on both my desktop and laptop. I can't seem to get nvidia drivers to work. Desktop has nvidia 550Ti card and laptop has nvidia nvs5400m w/ optimus ( which I have fully disabled in BIOS , (as in only nvidia enabled, not intel)). With X setup, there is only nv option which doesn't work but VESA does which is what it's on now. App cafe doesn't have nvidia drivers either, but I know pcbsd it has nvidia built in but for some reason can't see/enable the drivers for either comp.
Any ideas on what I can/need to do? This nvidia issue is the only thing holding me back from complete experience.

On side note I'm pumped (Good Job PCBSD!), been wanting to run BSD for soo long. This one works. It was always some hardware issue or something for me (linuxs always worked). I can even watch DVDs, just not with VLC, but SMplayer works fine for now.
