Ok, I followed your directions, but I'm getting new errors:

debian:/nvidia/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123# CC=gcc272 make install

cc1: Invalid option `-Wreturn-type'

make: *** [nv.o] Error 1

The default nv driver in XFree86 4.1.0 doesn't work at all. When I type startx, it says "no screens found." I've tried installing these nvidia drivers in the *.deb packages, but that involves re-compiling the kernel, and I keep getting errors while doing that as well. Do you know any helpful guides that thoroughly explain kernel-package, or another simplistic way to compile kernels?
