Well, that is exactly the problem.  I tried several times initially to
install it via apt but it could never do it.  IIRC, there was no
nvidia-glx package and so it would not install.  This was a test of an
installation BTW which ended up being only temporary.  When I finally
committed and gave over my main partition to Debian I decided to
simply try it the old fashioned way and see how it went.  So far so
good, though I expect that may change at any time.  Many thanks for
the howto though.  The next time I compile a kernel I will try it the
Debian way, just to see how I perhaps messed up the first time.
