[SOLVED] Error with Nvidia Drivers (following the Beginner's Guide)

I followed the beginner's installation guide and everything worked fine all the way up untill updating the kernel module dependencies using the "depmod -a" command..
First I created the "xorg.conf" file with the "nvidia-xconfig" command and it said:
Make sure all instances of DRI are commented out:
#    Load        "dri"
However, there are no instances of "dri" in my xorg.conf file, so i skipped this step and moved on.
Next it said:
Double check your /etc/X11/xorg.conf to make sure your default depth, horizontal sync, vertical refresh, and resolutions are acceptable.
But I don't know what they should be set to, so I skipped this and moved on again.
This is where everything fails:
The next step is to use the following command to update the kernel module dependencies for the nVidia drivers.
depmod -a
But when i do that, it fails.
Anyone know possibly why or has had this issue?

You can run any kernel version you wish on Arch, if you compile yourself, of course.
trustktr wrote:Hmmmm, yeah, that is a good question: When to run depmod -a?
When you first install the proprietary drivers. That's it, unless you will be maintaining a custom kernel system or something. In fact, the proprietary drivers might even run the depmod script themselves, I don't know, since it is a black box binary. Makes sense, but someone else would need to answer that.
EDIT: Also wanted to add that many shell commands throw no output whatsoever upon successful completion. Therefore, the absence of error output can be interpreted as no error. Just FYI.
