As I said, things are working fine it's just that I'm curious as to
why the nvidia driver was not found.

You need the following packages:
nvidia-glx : user-space bites
libgl1-nvidia-glx : libgl1 for the nvidia driver
nvidia-libvdpau1 : Makes vdpau work
nvidia-settings : Settings for the nvidia driver
nvidia-xconfig : builds a working xorg.conf
nvidia-kernel-2.6-686 : Meta package will keep the nVidia kernel
modules in lockset with new stock kernels


# nvidia-xconfig

The full procedure is:

apt-get install module-assistant nvidia-kernel-source
m-a prepare
m-a a-i nvidia
apt-get install nvidia-glx
depmod -a
modprobe nvidia
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

This will setup the xorg.conf

Then reload X
