Have you tried this?

Using stock debian kernel-image.

Install kernel headers with this command.
apt-get install kernel-headers-$(uname -r)

Create a sym link that points to the headers:
ln -s /usr/src/kernel-headers-%(uname -r) /lib/modules/$(uname

Then try to install the drivers by executing the nvidia installer.

This should work for you if you are using a Debian kernel-image.

Why do people who know the least know it the loudest?
