That's exactly what happened to me when I updated my system.  Debian 
has decided to force us to upgrade from XFree86 to XOrg, so even if 
you don't ask for a new X installation you'll get one anyway unless 
you manually put a hold on a few packages.  Checking the /var/log/X* 
messages for a line with (EE) in it will show you that the new 
Xserver can't load the old nForce video driver.

I went to the nvidia site and downloaded a program that will build 
the correct module, but it requires a properly-configured kernel 
source that matches the running kernel.  I'll try doing that as soon 
as I find documentation explaining how linux boots on the XBox (it's 
neither lilo nor grub) so I can (hopefully) get it all running on 2.6.
