@ Tinivole Great work thank you....
I have 185.18.10 working great under the latest 2.6.28-12-generic kernel.
I have installed both 2.6.29 and the 2.6.30 kernels for testing.
My question is, upon first boot to either kernel I hit the vesa modes looking for the correct nVidia driver. Can I just sudo nvidia-xconfig and use my installed drivers or do I have to run the setup again so that it can compile to these new kernels?
