    Nouveau or ubiquity problem on my machine (ubuntu alpha3

    Hi,

    I finally managed to get alpha 3 installed on my computer, but to do that I had to perform the upgrade (update-manager -d) over my 9.10 installation. I couldn't use a free partition like I was hoping.

    The problem is, the live cd will only get as far as the cd's boot menu, and when I select either install or live cd, something shuts off my monitor and the power button blinks (no output to monitor I think). I tried this several times without setting special boot options, and several times with random boot options but I still can't get it too keep power to my monitor. Being that I have no display and the live cd is session only I have no log files or error messages to look at. If it is not the Nouveau drivers, then it might be ubiquity or xorg crashing my display.

    It is not a problem with my monitor, because I am running Lucid alpha3 as we speak. Also, virtualbox has no problem running the iso image of Lucid-alpha3. I md5'ed the iso and it checks out fine. The problem is only booting the cd from my PC.

    Does anybody know of a command or boot option to bypass the new Nouveau drivers, and let me use the earlier open source nvidia drivers?

    (Nvidia 8400 GS)
    Here's my other hardware:
