As for the Nvidia driver, I do have a version compiled for 2.4.19-1.ll,
you should be able to "apt-get install NVIDIA_kernel NVIDIA_GLX" (I
don't remember the exact names of the packages). 

If that does not work you could try building the NVIDIA driver with the
compatibility compiler (compat-gcc). 

Or you could wait a bit. The next kernel and alsa releases will be
compiled with both gcc3.2 and gcc2.96, coming to a Planet CCRMA near you
"real soon now" (current status: I'm testing a better repository
organization that simplifies the previous one, the goal is to make it
easier to choose and install the proper kernel - I do have working
2.4.20/acpi and alsa 0.9.2+ rpms).
