nvidia gforce2 card that i'd like to have working. anyway, is there
a way to load their proprietary module at the boot prompt?

egorgry can probably give you the details but I'm fairly certain you can install the Nvidia modules with apt-get. That's how I'd do it.

I always do a custom compile, but you could follow this.

Also nvidia has teh script thingy to help install the modules on the drivers page.
