Check out the wiki page  for nvidia drivers, a lot has changed with
the free driver moving from nv to nouveau. I couldn't get 3d
acceleration to work with nouveau, but it works fine with the nvidia
packages from the Debian repos. You may have to do some research to
make sure that you get a driver version that will work with your card.
I haven't checked out the DKMS changes yet, still using a stupid
little script to run module-assistant to build the nvidia module when
I update the kernel.
I wish I had an answer for you on the start up dependencies. When I
did a few Lenny to Squeeze updates, I had to run apt-get a few times
to clear up error messages related to dependency loops, but nothing
that caused time outs like you are experiencing.
