1.try setting res with xrandr, maybe your gfx card is running in safe mode?!
3.depending on your distro, u'll need root permission.
try using sudo command or runnind filemanagaer with root permissions and changing xconfig file persmissions.

Make sure your /etc/apt/sources.list has contrib non-free If it doesn't edit the file as root.
nano /etc/apt/sources.list

It should look something like:
deb lenny main contrib non-free
deb-src lenny main contrib non-free

Make sure you save then in a terminal as root do: (you can copy+paste the entire command)

aptitude update && aptitude install module-assistant && m-a a-i nvidia-kernel
After successful module compilation, still as root do:

aptitude install nvidia-glx nvidia-xconfig && nvidia-xconfig -o /etc/X11/xorg.conf
