Default Big Problems Installing Nvidia Drivers (Debian Unstable)

I am having some pretty big problems with installing the latest Nvidia drivers.
I get errors like this when trying to do the install of the NVIDIA_kernel package (make install, from nvidia website)
"
Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. Contact the module supplier for
assistance, only they can help you.
"
and then for some reason, it seems as if it works anyway, until I try to run X with the 'Load "glx" ' line. I dont get any errors except that it says refer to log file, which has nothing about glx at all. last line about that is something like "loadextension glx" then I got back into console with a "check log files" message.
(I did install nvidia_glx too, no errors installing that)
I changed my XF86Config-4 file, from the "nv" to "nvidia", but in my /var/log/XFree86.0.log it says:
'
LoadModule: "nv"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nv_drv.o
'

I have tryed this with the 2.4.18(before) kernels and the 2.4.19(now) kernels, and have the very latest debian unstable. (XFree86 4.2.1 I think)
graphics card is an Nvidia Geforce2 MX 32MB

Thank You in Advance.
