Default ti4200 debian squeeze INSTALL PROBLEM

First, Yes it is probably me. This card driver installed with almost no problems using Debian Lenny on the same box. The only different hardware is a new hard drive. The only problems installing on Lenny were mine. I did a clean install of squeeze (w/firmware) netinst. I select no software and add contrib and non-free to my sources.list and apt-get update. I then apt-get install x-window-system-core kde kdm. x-window-system-core is now gone and it installs the xorg stuff anyway. Whether I use the NVIDIA-Linux*96.43.19.run or the "Debian Way" I get the same results. For the last try I did a clean install and then removed everything "nouveau" and "nvidia". I did m-a prepare to make sure I had all needed tools. I then installed the NVIDIA-L*.run and it completed with no problems. I selected to not make an xorg.conf. GUI comes up fine. I get one screen resolution and nvidia comes up with 'lsmod'. But I have no glx capabilities.

If I include an xorg.conf wheter created by nvidia-xconfig or X -configure or manually created I sit at the KDM login with slow response keyboard and slow response mouseclick (although the mouse cursor will move responsively). I get the error:

The above is from /var/log/kdm.log

I have tried minimalistic xorg.conf (just load "nvidia") to full blown everything but the kitchen sink and get the same results. I really don't want to disable hal and/or udev
but I would like to use google earth again and vnc into my other computer (with decent response).
Sometimes, (with xorg.conf) I can ctrl-alt-f1, login, startx and I am in and the nvidia-settings shows glx tags in the left pane. When I click on one I am locked up and usually need to hard reset.
I know I am missing something and it does not appear to an Nvidia or Nvidia driver problem but hoping someone has been through this and succeeded. I can post logs (here or through pastebin) with or without xorg.conf(s). If you want to take a crack at it let me know. Thanks for looking.
