Just so you realize this, and understand why it doesn't work now:
-nvidia drivers are made of 2 modules:
1) a binary-only module which is actually the driver
2) an open-source module which interfaces the kernel with the driver

when you install from tarballs, you only recompile the 2nd module with your new gcc 3.2, the real driver is then linked with it (but its compiled with 2.x).. so insmod SHOULD fail since it is truly the wrong compiler version

Just my 0.02$
