I have Debian 3.0 release 2 running with my FX card.
I had to rebuild my kernel with the woody "idepci" config file. I did this the old fashioned way by installing the kernel source with dselect and using make. I found the config file for that kernel on www.debian.org
Then after restarting my PC with this new kernel the nvidia installer will rebuild okay.
Oh, I used verison 4496 of the Nvidia installer.
