argh, fat fingers!

found that some months ago on the old forum, here you go:

get the kernel source and make your own kernel.
apt-get install kernel-source-2.4.18 kernel-package nvidia-kernel-src nvidia-glx-src kernel-patch-xfs

cd /usr/src
tar xvjf kernel-source-2.4.18.tar.bz2
tar xvzf nvidia-kernel-src.tar.gz
ln -s kernel-source-2.4.18 linux

cd linux
cp /boot/config-2.4.18-bf?? .config (to get the same conf as your running kernel)

export PATCH_THE_KERNEL=YES (to apply the XFS patch during make-kpkg)
make-kpkg --config=xconfig --revision=custom.1 kernel_image (--config is optional)
make-kpkg modules_image

cd ../nvidia-glx-version
dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc

dpkg -i packages generated in /usr/src

update lilo or grub and reboot

as you see kernel compilation is easy with debian as it is integrated with package management.

read /usr/doc/nvidia-*-src/README.Debian
