TMK, kernel modules are kept in subdirectories of /lib/modules/`uname
-r`/.  There are Debian packages for the nVidia drivers now
"nvidia-kernel-src" and "nvidia-glx-src".  Both provide instructions on
how to build them in their README files in /usr/share/doc/.  I'm not
sure about your wireless driver.  I normally just use the orinoco module
with the default kernels.
