I just re-did the steps mtrr posted, and everything went fine until i had to
dpkg -i *.deb in the /usr/src/ dir
I kept getting some error, but I just tried compiling the Nvidia drivers from the tar.gz again, and it worked. I'm guessing that all the compilations needs is for the first few steps to point ot the correct location. All is well now, and I'm getting incredible performace out of my card. UT now beats the hell out of the Windows version, as does Quake3!
Long live Debian!
P.S. Thanks for the help everyone, I greatly appreciate it!
