nvidia drivers debian

so I just finished my install of debian testing (etch) with a 2.6.12-1-386 kernel(thats what I get with uname -a). Now I need to get my nvidia drivers on there and the way I used to do it was apt-get install the kernel source and headers, but this time its not happening this way and I do not know what to do. I searched around for a HOWTO but nothing is that recent. Now I did see a few ways to install nvidia drivers on debian using apt-get but those way are not working for me either.

Bottom line- I can not compile my nvidia drivers and I need to.
