I _am_ using the latest NVIDIA driver:

nick@nikolas:~$ dmesg | grep NVIDIA
nvidia: module license 'NVIDIA' taints kernel.
NVRM: loading NVIDIA Linux x86 NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-7167 Fri Feb
25 09:08:22 PST 2005

nick@nikolas:~$ ll /lib/modules/`uname -r`/nvidia
total 4315
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4399395 2005-03-27 12:29 nvidia.ko

If you are not relying on udev being able to create nvidia device nodes
you are not affected.
