I am using Xorg from Sid and linux-image from Sid. Is there some way

Does that mean you're running a mixed Testing/Sid system?

to rectify this, i.e. some console setup script I can run in local rc or such?

Even though the nvidia driver in Sid is showing it's age, the GeForce 6200 is pretty old, so it "should" work, and does w/ my 7300SE.

Seek truth from facts.
