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

Hmm, this is what I found doing the above instructions:

debian:~# depmod -a
debian:~# modprobe nvidia
FATAL: Module nvidia not found.

As a side note, I tried running the installer via an SSH terminal (I've had no problems with this before), when I switched back to my linux box (attached to a KVM switch), I noticed these lines on the screen:

nvidia:version magic '2.6.5 SMP prempt PENTIUM III gcc-3.3 should be '2.6.5.050504 SMP preempt PENTIUM III gcc-3.3'

What does that mean? Do I need to recompile my kernel to have the nvidia
module?

I'm new at this linux thing, so I apologize for my ignorance! Many thanks!
