nvidia problems (Sid dist-upgrade)


The yesterday dist-upgrade install two new packages:
linux-image-2.6.18-1-486 nvidia-kernel-2.6.18-1-486

(I use a custom kernel)

Also installs new versions of:
nvidia-glx nvidia-kernel-source

After dist-upgrade, xorg doesn't start: «no screens found».

One new nvidia module-assistant (*) after dist-upgrade doesnt solve the 
(*) http://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsDrivers

Then I've returned to the old versions:

nvidia-glx 1.0.8774-6
nvidia-kernel- 1.0.8774-6+20060528.01
nvidia-kernel-common 20051028+1
nvidia-kernel-source 1.0.8774-6

and purge linux-image-2.6.18-1-486, I use my kernel.

Is the correct way?  I don't understand this new nvidia update. I should use 
the linux-image-2.6.18-1-486 instead of my kernel?   I'm sorry, don't know 
deeply how nvidia works. From now I use module-assistant 
(http://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsDrivers) and was very easy :)
