You can use this script:

Or:
sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx nvidia-kernel-common
sudo nvidia-glx-config enable

That script worked great! I think the difference was that the script downloaded and installed gcc-3.4 whereas I had 4.0 installed. Anyways, I now have the nvidia driver working and TVOut enabled and the speed is much better. Thanks again!
