You can try nvidia-update:
deb http://v0n0.altervista.org/debian experimental non-free

However, from my experience Nvidia drivers are much less complicated
to make work than ATI's. It's only a matter of getting latest version!
(eg. I had to tell explicitly the number of chipset in xorg.conf to
make X work on a Xpress 200!!)
