I'm getting these messages in dmesg when I try to load the nvidia.ko module on my system with a GTS 250 card:
[ 626.029571] NVRM: The NVIDIA GPU 0000:02:00.0 (PCI ID: 10de:0615)

[ 626.029645] NVRM: The NVIDIA probe routine failed for 1 device(s).

I tried both with the latest 260.19.12 drivers and the 260.19.06 version included in Ubuntu 10.10, and they give the same errors.
Here is lspci -vvv for my card:
