Debian now has the Nvidia drivers. I think they are partly in "contrib"  and
partly in "non-free". Which is a little bit of a nuisance in that if yours 
sources.list doesn't reference both categories, it will look like the package
is broken. This is just for testing and unstable, however. I'm sure there
not in stable (woody) Also they are not the latest. I don't think they will
work with 2.6.x kernels.
