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
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.
that is the FAQ from nvidia also helpful
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...
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...
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.
