just FYI on new Nvidia driver site
 
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-6111.html

ok im rebooting now after attempting to install the 6111 driver set for an Nvidia GeForce2 MX/MX 400 card and wanted to post a few URLs that were extreemly helpful

http://home.comcast.net/~andrex/Debi...tallation.html

that was the one that walked me step by step on exactly how to configure my /etc/apt/sources.list, what files to apt-get install, what to do with them once they were downloaded and installed, etc...

very powerful page. hope it helps others trying to install and configure Nvidia drivers on a Debian sarge system.

ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...111/README.txt

that is the FAQ from nvidia also helpful

http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-6111.html

thats were i got the first set of display drivers, but ran into problems when i did not have any kernel sources installed for my card...

http://qref.sourceforge.net/Debian/r...ackage.en.html

98% the way down the bottom explains why changing the init (runlevel) from 3 to 2 or any # between 2-5 is worthless in debian for stopping the X-server from starting...

http://qref.sourceforge.net/Debian/r...tombootscripts

tells you how to edit this issue and what files/programs to use to edit the run level of programs like xdm (x-server)

so in the end, after a lot of time on google, here, and with some guidance from my LUG, i should have my nvidia 61.11 drivers installed and working properly. god help me if not im so lost if this did not work.

an other update for the Nvidia community. when i tried the other links i have above this time around nothing worked properly, but when i grabed directly from Nvidia's site (link above for i386) and followed the directions for the new installer they have it worked perfect. it even detected that i did not have the kernel-headers and downloaded the correct vs, installed them and everything.

in the end the only thing i had to do was edit my XF86Config-4 file with the proper settings from the above link to get the 3D drivers working and the Nvidia logo to show when i startx.

3 cheers for Nvidia on this one.
