Did you pick the framebuffer option? I found it was a real big problem.
As soon as I installed without it the nv driver worked well.

Subject: Nvidia problems
I am running Libranet 2.8 (based on sarge) and can't seem to get my
onboard graphics going. I can use "nv" and X works but only
Attached are the files and logs which i hope will provide someone with
enough info to help me with this.
The onboard graphic is Nvidia Riva TNT2 Mach64 (16mb) The PC is a Dell
ICQ - 24092988

It seems nvidia driver has some problem.
When I compile the framebuffer nvidia RIVA options, everytime I
switched from X to console(framebuffer) and then when I tried to switch
back to X, the keyboard just can't work and I need to remote login and
kill the X manully,
And so I checked out the nvidia RIVA framebuffer option( but kept the
overall framebuffer option), debian starts with console without
framebuffer, I can swtich from X to console and swtich back, the only
problem is that the console will lost color( colorful strings will
become invisible) and the console sometimes out of the screen.
And several days ago when I recompiled the kernel and modules, I found
that NVidia has updated their driver and the problem above has been
solved( I haven't tested framebuffer yet, u can have a try)
So my personal suggestion is to recompile you modules and have the
latest nvidia driver installed.
