I recently installed the official nvidia driver (version 1.0.3203) from 
the ports collection my FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE machine.  Is there a way to 
load the nvidia.ko module at startup?  I've tried putting 
nvidia_load="YES" in my /boot/loader.conf file, which was suggested in a 
message I found in the archives of freebsd-questions, but it didn't work 
for me.  The module doesn't get loaded, and I still have to run "kldload 
nvidia" to get things to work.
