Default nVidia G70 with 32 bit Etch Problem

Objective: 32 bit chroot Etch on a system with an AMD 64 bit processor. Problem: Incorrect video driver for nVidia G70 card.

To start I copied xorg.conf from the primary system - Lenny with an x86_64 linux kernel image. The display works fine on the primary system using the nv driver. When it failed on the chroot Etch I went to the nVidia website and downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173-14-12-pkg1.run to produce a driver and ran it from the chroot Etch. It detected the 64 bit processor and aborted. Next I tried NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-177-13-pkg2.run. This aborted at line 191 with a missing file message. Next I installed and ran nvidia-xconfig. This changed the driver from nv to nvidia but when I tried to start gdm it failed with a message "Failed to load module 'nvidia' (module does not exist, 0)"

Where can I find and download an appropriate binary nvidia driver?

I would attach the results of running nvidia-bug-report.sh if I could find and download nvidia-bug-report.sh from the nvidia web site. A search for this only give three pages of the instances in which I should use it.

nvidia-bug-report.sh is included with the drivers (as is nvidia-xconfig). Also it might help if you post the exact error message when installing the drivers.
