The card probably has 32 MB, but normally XFree can autodetect the
memory and you do not have to tell XFree how much RAM your card has.

apt-get install x-window-system-core

If you are not asked for the configuration because some of the packages
were already installed, run

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

When asked if you want to use debconf to configure the x server, select
"yes". When asked for the video driver, select "nv" from the list. When
asked for the monitor configuration, select "advanced" and enter the
frequencies. When asked for the mouse, select /dev/psaux as the device
(unless you have gmp running for mouse support at the console, in that
case select /dev/gmpdata and set the repeat prorocol to "raw" in
gpmconfig"), and select imps/2 as your protocol. When asked if you want
to use the kernel framebuffer, select "no".
