Thanks! Works because with this method aptitude doesn't install 
linux-image-2.6.18-1-486 that I don't need.

I've installed nvidia-kernel-source, then

# m-a update
# m-a prepare
# m-a auto-install nvidia
# aptitude install nvidia-glx

After this I have:

nvidia-glx 1.0.8776-1
nvidia-kernel- 1.0.8776-1+20060528.01
nvidia-kernel-common 20051028+1 files
nvidia-kernel-source 1.0.8776-1

I've stopped xorg, but kdm doesn't starts :(

Xorg.0.log tail:

With snapshot.debian.org I've returned to 1.0.8774-6 and now works fine:
