Re: configuring? kernel and header source
Thanks for the suggestions. Actually, it was just that you have to
unzip the sources after installing them. I didn't know that. Seems
like the package installation would do such a thing, but I guess not.
Can any C compilers work with zipped up sources; I'm a java developer
so my C knowledge is a bit hazy and distant at this point.

I have never used the nvidia installer with the Debian stock kernels,
but based on my experience with my custom kernels I think that it might
be sufficient to create a /usr/src/linux symlink which points to your
kernel headers directory.
If that does not work then you will probably have to use the
"--kernel-source-path" option to point the installer to the correct
directory. (See the nvidia README.txt and/or run the installer script
with "--advanced-options" to get a brief explanation.)
