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.
