::-I think it really has been a long time since I have done this... I am
not sure  ::-I really meant compiling the nvidia drivers.  I think they
are already  ::-compiled, but I am unable to apt-get them, the
nvidia-kernel-source and  ::-related glx packages.

I have an nvidia (and glx driver) under debian, and I also had trouble
with the packaging.  I think apt-getting the binary driver
just downloads an uncompressed version of the driver package which I
could not figure out, so I just have that sitting in /usr/src
uninstalled and used the usual NVIDIA-Linux-x86 package from nvidia.com.
Works fine, but it is a little sloppy to keep the apt-installed files
sitting there unused (they are needed for dependancies for other
packages however)
Sorry if that explanation made no sense, I will clarify if needed. (I
don't complely understand the nvidia-glx package myself)
