Are you sure?
suggests that it's not in lenny because no kernel modules packages are
present, rendering nvidia-glx and thus everything completely
uninstallable.  IIRC this was an issue in etch as well.  I don't
remember how it was solved, but I think the modules were manually built
and uploaded once it was clear which version of nvidia-graphics-drivers
and the kernel were going to be released.
