non-free nvidia driver on etch?

I am running etch. I installed the legacy nvidia driver to work around
a bug with the 8178 release. I am ready to move back to the current
version, but I can't sort out the situation with the etch & the nvidia

Some googling turns up nothing except the fact that the nvidia drivers
aren't working on etch:


I tried downloading the unstable driver packages and doing dpkg -i.
The unstable drivers depend on xorg 1.7.0, so that was a bust.

I was hoping to keep my driver installed 'the debian way' rather than
install the package from Nvidia. Does anyone know how best to install
the nvidia graphics driver on etch?
