Re: SiS 771/671 Mirage 3 Video Drivers!?!?
The flickering screen when booting the live cd is plymouth... meaning.. you'll have to wait +- 30/90 seconds for the desktop to show up.
You can use your terminals after that to restore grub, but won't be able to use tty's (ctrl+alt+f1,f2, etc) because the vga16fb module can't be blacklisted live since you'll loose that config after reboot.
Anyway; Ubuntu live cd will work right after plymouth is finished and gdm starts
Good luck restoring your grub, I guess it won't be any problem for you reinstalling your grub since there's much info on it on the web.
In case you need help with that; read

When your thread it solved: go to thread tools > Mark this thread as solved
for SIS 771/671 use xcompmgr to have transparent terminals. just load it at startup.
And then they asked: what's a pbkac error?
