Version 0.55 worked fine for me with 10.04.

It doesn't work with all Sony VPCCW1* laptops, however. I had to make the following changes to get it working for my Sony VPCCW17FX (NVidia g210m):

// This has to be BEFORE the general VPCCW1 line
NVIDIABL_DECLARE_LAPTOP_MODEL("Sony Corporation", "VPCCW17FX", 0x0a74, 0, 1024, 127000),
NVIDIABL_DECLARE_LAPTOP_MODEL("Sony Corporation", "VPCCW1", 0x0a2a, 0, 7000, 2500000),
/* NVIDIA Quadro FX 470 */
{ PCI_VDEVICE(NVIDIA, 0x087f), (kernel_ulong_t)&nv5x_driver_data },
/* NVIDIA GeForce 210M */
{ PCI_VDEVICE(NVIDIA, 0x0a74), (kernel_ulong_t)&nv5x_driver_data },
/* NVIDIA GeForce 230M */
{ PCI_VDEVICE(NVIDIA, 0x0a2a), (kernel_ulong_t)&nv5x_driver_data },
Now if i could only get it to not conflict with the sony-laptop module it would be perfect
