Default GeForce 210 fails with 195.36.31 & kernel 2.6.32-21|2.6.32-22

Good day,
I'm trying to install the nVidia Linux driver, version 195.36.31, on Ubuntu 10.04 i32 (Lucid Lynx).
I've tested the installation against the kernel version that shipped with the distro (2.6.32-21) and 2.6.32-22.

On both kernel versions the nvidia.ko kernel module loads, but when I attempt to launch the X server the process fails. The following error is logged by syslogd:

NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x27:0x28:1094)
NVRM: rm_init_adapter(0) failed

I've made sure that I've deinstalled the nouveau package and blacklisted the module. Also, some threads suggested that "vmalloc=256M" should be added to the GRUB default cmd line. I've confirmed that the size is increased when I 'cat /proc/meminfo', but that doesn't help either:
VmallocTotal: 524288 kB
VmallocUsed: 34920 kB
VmallocChunk: 480892 kB

It does seem asif the PCI ID is correctly detected, if I compare the bus id in xorg.conf with the value from lspci:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GT218 [GeForce 210]
