Cannot get NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-6629-pkg2.run to run properly


I have just bought a fancy new 64 bit machine with an NVidia FX5200 and am struggling to get it installed. I am running 2.6.9-9-amd64-generic and have the kernel headers package installed.

The installer seems to be working fine until is about 80% done compiling then it just falls over. This is the output of /var/log/nvidia-installer.log:

ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f

this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for
your kernel.

The only way I have found of setting up my graphics card is to opt for a non 64 bit kernel and use a different installer, but this seems daft as I've paid good money for this 64 bit machine. Can anyone help?
