I just did this and it worked fine.  I have 2.4.7 kernel, but Woody.  I put
in a new video card - nvidia and needed the driver.  Someone told me to get
X4.2.  I used 'apt-get xfree86-common xserver-xfree86' after 'apt-get
update' with testing in sources.list.  Then I installed the nvidia kernel
and glx.  I don't think it would matter, but I did it after upgrading X.
This process didn't mess up the rest of my install.
