here is what you need to do go to
get the package there nvidia has a patch for the 2.6.27 kernel. do not do it like i did and spend hours reading on nvidia patch files.just go here build it. if the nvida configure program does not install with the modules do like I did. cd /tmp/ nvida build file and run nvidia installer. this has to be done in runlevel 3 and as root. reboot have fun. so after you build the module and pktool it in. if you do not have the nvidia setings tool such as nvidia-setting and nvidia-xorgconf. then do like I said runlevel 3 as root cd /tmp and the name of your kernel build file. there you will see the compiled package. type ./nvidia-installer and then it is all as usuall. on my upgrade I did not have to do this because nvidias bionary tools were already installed but on a new install I had to do the plus remove gspca_main black list it then compile max's gspca to get my old cam to work good luck. I guess the reason why it did not install with the module is the build scripts.

It seems your card is supported by this driver
No patches are necessary, it's a beta driver but it works fine for me
Hope this helps

I resolve:

1- Link in /boot vmlinuz, y config to ->
config -> config-huge-
vmlinuz -> vmlinuz-huge-

2- rc.modules -> rc.modules-
3- In the /extra folder:
chmod +x

4- (10x Urka58)
