Well you could simply download the .deb's from unstable.  If you happen
to have actual pinning setup and unstable listed in your sources.list
then you should be able to do:

apt-get install nvidia-kernel-source/unstable
m-a clean,a-i -t nvidia
apt-get install -t unstable nvidia-glx

That should probably take care of it.

If you don't have it setup for pinning fully, then you could download the
packages from for i386 or amd64 (whichever
you use) and install nvidia-kernel-source*deb with dpkg -i first, then
do m-a then install nvidia-glx*deb.  Might need nvidia-common updated
as well, although I don't remember if that has changed recently or not.
