The nv driver should work with your nvidia card for 2D graphics. If you want 
to do any gaming or anything that requires 3D graphics you'll need to install 
the nvidia kernel module. Those modules are available in etch and sid in the 
non-free and contrib repo's, look for nvidia*

If your running sarge you need to build those modules yourself, it's easy to 
do if you have module-assistant installed. First run "m-a prepare" and m-a 
will prepare your box to build those modules and then "m-a a-i nvidia" to 
build those modules, create an nvidia*.deb and install it. Once that is done 
run dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 (or xorg) and choose the nvidia driver.
