1. Upon bootup I receive the error message nivdia kernel not found..nvidia.ko cannot be found.

2. When I reinstall the nvidia driver, it reports that there is an existing nvidia driver and asks me to replace it. It then builds the kernel module, and gives a warning regarding "The nvidia-installer was unable to determine the correct X library installation path with the pkg-config utility. Please install the X.Org SDK/development package for your distribution."
Followed by "nvidia-installer was unable to determine the correct X library installation path and will install the NVIDIA X libraries to /usr/lib"

Not sure if this is related to my problem as the drivers still install fine.

Thanks for your help from a total noobie.
did you install these packages before nvidia-glx ?
Code:
build-essential 
linux-source 
linux-headers-`uname -r`   (uname -r is your kernel version number)
xserver-xorg-dev
also, be sur to have uninstalled old nvidia driver.
