Default Re: Is Debian any good

can't get past this bit

I have followed this guide to the letter , but when i drop out of X and run the package it says file not found
anyone any ideasof how to resolve.

Here is the tutorial i am following. The red entry is the problem

1. Open a terminal and type sudo su
2. Type apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)
3. Type cd /usr/src
4. Type ln -s linux-headers-$(uname -r) linux
5. Type
6. Type /etc/init.d/gdm stop (to stop gdm and drop to a terminal)
7. Type cd /usr/src && sh (to launch the nVidia installer script)

* Accept the license agreement to continue
* Select No on the first question prompting to download Kernel from nVidia
* Click Ok to compile a new Kernel
* Select No at the prompt to abort now
* Let the installer finish the build
* Select Yes to let nVidia-xconfig automatically update your xorg.conf file
* Click Ok
* Once the installer has completed, type startx and enjoy your new video hardware enabled Lenny with nVidia drivers
