I think I have a mixture between those but I think the general problem is

Well, since you are already able to provide the nvidia stuff on cd (for
which I think you have made a contract with nvidia) you might also be able

someone with solid kernel background is probably more welcome at nvidia. I
think nvidia would listen more to a dev working for a promintent linux disto.
