Aha, I see something wrong here:

peter at 64studio:~$ uname -a
Linux 64studio 2.6.17-2-multimedia-486 #1 PREEMPT Tue Jun 27 10:40:20 UTC
2006 i 686 GNU/Linux

and I was trying to use the nvidia-kernel-legacy-96xx-2.6.21-1
-multimedia-486

so probably that's why the nvidia-kernel module is not found, and I have to
upgrade the Linux kernel.

In Synaptic I find the linux-image-2.6.21-1-multimedia-486 package which is
what I need, I hope so and will try it now ... Ok installed fine

Now change the /etc/X11/xorg.conf's Driver to "nvidia" again, killall gdm,
gdm
and I should see the nvidia driver loaded ... mm, not working, I still have
the same result from uname -a.
