Default Help installing NVIDIA Debian AMD64

Ok I'm running a Debian AMD64 system with sid-netinstall. I currently have kernel 2.6.10-9 and kernel 2.6.8-10 installed, both under amd-generic(kernel-image-2.6.xx-amd64-generic). Now my problem first was that it complained about the kernel source, so I grabbed both the 2.6.10 source and the kernel-headers-2.6.xx-amd64-generic and tried both with a no go. I'm running KDE 3.3 with both gcc 3.3 and 3.4 installed and seeminly running fine. I've tried the --kernel-source=/ and all that. I haven't found my problem anywhere here =( so I'm going to post it.

   this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for

oh and the kernel source isn't specified because I made a link to /usr/src/ which has linux pointing to /usr/src/kernel-headers-2.6.10-9-amd64-generic at the moment.
