That is what I did.  I downloaded the stock 2.6.17 kernel and then I build the 
fuse module and nvidia kernel module with the help of module-assistant.

This is what I have on my Etch system:

linux-image-2.6.17-v3            2.6.17-v3-10.00.Custom

ii  nvidia-glx                       1.0.8774-7 
ii  nvidia-kernel-2.6.17-2-686       1.0.8774-7+2.6.17-9 
ii  nvidia-kernel-2.6.17-v3          1.0.8774-7+2.6.17-v3-10.00.Custom
ii  nvidia-kernel-common             20051028+1 
ii  nvidia-kernel-source             1.0.8774-7     

The maintainer of the Debian nvidia packages indicated that some new nvidia 
packages should be moved from Sid to Etch very soon.
