Default nvidia.ko not found, even with module-init-tools installed!

Hi everyone:

I'm running Debian Woody unstable, using custom built SMP kernel 2.6.5

When I try installing the latest Nvidia linux drivers, I get the:

ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'. This is most likely
because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel source
files. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files
for your kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you
have the 'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct
kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source
path with the '--kernel-source-path' commandline option.

This is after I've did an apt-get install module-init-tools (which was installed properly) and I've used the --kernel-source-path option. This is the command I issued:

sh --kernel-source-path /usr/src/linux-2.6.5

No luck, any ideas? Could it be a bug with the installer and the 2.6.5 kernel or am I missing something there? I'm using a SMP kernel (Dual PIII w/ Geforce MX), would that affect anything?
