that sounds kinda fishy, indeed.

my recommendation would be to stay with the latest kernel offered in lenny
because it probably has bugfixes/security fixes.  instead of using the
prebuilt kernel driver package, try rolling your own with module-assistant.
something like:

sudo apt-get install module-assistant build-essential
sudo m-a prepare
sudo m-a a-i nvidia-kernel-source
