X server can't start Debian/Nvidia

The other day, I decided to install Debian(woody). The install was great, but as soon as I tried to "startx", I got "(EE)No screen detected". I reinstall xserver-xfree86 and xfonts-base but now I get an error "Fatal server error: Module load failure" Can anyone help?
