You need to download the nvidia driver packages for your kernel.

apt-get install nvidia-kernel-2.4.25 ( example it change the numbers to match ).
apt-get install nvidia-glx

will take care of it for you. If theres no version in binary form for your kernel, you'll need too build them from source ( which is quite easy on debian ).

to check what versions are available do

apt-cache search nvidia

Once installed you need to reconfigure XFree for the new driver.

I would establish the hsync and vsync settings for your monitor either from the manual or from the manufacturers website ( mine are 30-70 and 50-160) then armed with that info do dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 and when you come to the monitor section use the advanced option and set them.
