Nothing to loose...
The NVS variant of the Nvidia 295 chip is not listed as supported on the Nvidia driver site.
Just on the odd chance, download a copy of one of the linuxs with a built-in Nvidia driver, PCLinuxOS or Mint, and see if one of them will boot and run the driver without your fault.
It is no help now, but if you wait, Nvidia will probably support the NVS in the future. Does the card run with the "nv" module?
