Let me see...
I go to the linex home page. What do i see ?
"GNU/LinEx y tarjetas NVIDIA".
Oh well, seems interesting, so I go in the page and see that they seem to 
provide some package for nvidia drivers. Maybe newer drivers (their distro is 
based on woody, so...)
Ok, let's google a bit, and.... shazaam !
Oh ! non-free software !

Thanks Richard for keeping me laughing.
