May you please give me the name of the package?

Many thanks in advance

So install i686 to f***, and stop this senseless discussion. Its even hard to believe that you dont have i686(pentium2) or higher processor, but its immpossible that you need i486 kernel. But if you want make problems, then resolve them yourself. Like previous posters told, you must have two things to compile nvidia drivers for your kernel:
1) Kernel headers(in some distros sources), matching your kernel version.
2) GCC exact version to that your kernel has been build, otherwise modules can be built and installed, but it will fail to load (without --force option).

Post Re: Kernel 2.6.26.1 and NVIDIA drivers

To take care of the GCC version mismatch, you have two options:
1. Run "export CC=/usr/bin/gcc-4.1" before using module-assistant or the Nvidia installer. You should still have GCC 4.1 installed. If you do not have GCC 4.1 installed for some reason, install it via "apt-get install gcc-4.1". This will not overwrite your installation of GCC 4.3 or any other GCC installs.

2. Recompile your kernel using GCC 4.3. I don't recommend this option, and I think anybody who wants to do this should be able to figure it out without me explaining the process.

I would also recommend migrating to the i686 or higher build of the kernel under most circumstances, but it shouldn't matter. Make sure that you have all the right headers, regardless of what kernel variant you choose. Module-assistant will automatically get your kernel headers and other packages necessary for building kernel modules.

The above answer is senseless if you had read my post 08-31-08, 07:09 AM.

The truth is that 96.43.07 does not support the 2.6.26 kernel.

It might be that the installer provided by nvidia is not, but then usually a patch is needed in order to make it compile, and the debian dudes apparently have done that. If you'd just use the default debian kernel you can install the corresponding kernel module from the repositories and everything should work out of the box.
