First of all, I highly recommend using the Debian packages and not the
installer you got from NVIDIA. It can be confusing at first (a couple of
methods available depending on how you deal with kernels), but it will
save a lot of trouble during upgrades, and is multiple kernel friendly.

If you really want to use the installer, there is a way to use multiple
kernels. If I remember correctly, it has an option for that in advanced
options (--advanced-options).

There is also a forum [1] where you can contact NVIDIA developers, but,
as I said, it is already possible.
