I know I don't know all of what I am doing yet. Learning little by little.
Dove in to SID and just updated. I received a kernel 3.1.0-1-amd64
After rebooting I don't have my nvidia anymore is what I think has happened.
I am at a console login prompt.
I reverted back to 3.0.0-1 so I could get back to a working system.
I guess what my question is:
How do I get 3.1.0-1 to boot up?

Sorry I haven't got back to you before now...All the 3.x.x kernels have a problem during the build process & the makefile needs to be patched everytime you do a kernel upgrade..
First download the upgrade
next patch the kernel module makefile (/usr/src/linux-headers-3.x.x)
then run nvidia-kernel-dkms (if you are running the Debian-supplied driver)
Here's the patch file:

I manually patch the file with:
and then clean it up (remove the +'s)
