Default API Mismatch

I get the following error when I try to start X windows:
Error: API mismatch: the NVIDIA kernel module is version 7.1.0, but this X module is version 1.0.7167. Please be sure that your kernel module and all NVIDIA driver files have the same driver version.

How would I go about debugging this? I just installed the latest nvidia audio and ethernet drivers, I don't understand why that affected my X configuration.

My system is Debian Sarge, 2.6.8, Athlon XP, Nvidia Ti4400 chipset. I just installed the 301 version of the sound and nic drivers, but I think the error was there before that. I had it working with full OpenGL accelleration and everything, and it just quit working one day.

Is there a way around this? Any good guides to building video, nic, and audio support into a custom kernel? I'm sort of a noob so bear with me.

Please run the `nvidia-bug-report.sh` script after a failed attempt to start X and attach the generated log file to this thread.
