Only that it sounds really familiar.  The same thing happened to me.  I downloaded 
tar.gz files, did make clean / make install / changed XF86Config-4 and made sure 
nvidia was in /etc/modules, and it STILL requires that I make install the kernel
driver each boot.  I wish I knew the solution for those of us who are used to doing
the NVidia driver the make-install way.
