Interesting, Somehow I failed to realize that debian used a different runlevel profile. Well, I guess that explains why I didn't see any errors.
Alright. So, I installed via the Nvidia installer, and ran the nvidia-xconfig to auto-update xorg.conf. I saw no errors, in the boot process. However when I start slim and run startx I get errors. I would print the log, but I was unable to find anything relavant in the logs.
