The Debian version of the driver wouldn't install.  It advised me to use nouveau during the failed process. I had never used the sgfxi script before.  It identifies the correct driver and downloads it from the nvidia site.  Not without a few bumps but thankfully worked in the end.  Card is a 4000 series which is on the edge of no longer being supported.
