two days ago i started setting up a dual boot system on my old dell dimension 2400 with 9.10 and XP. everything went just as the installation "howto" decribed: format, partition, installed xp, installed ubuntu. yesterday, i tried out the fresh installs and updated both ubuntu and xp. both updated and rebooted fine. ZERO problems. today i push the power button and select ubuntu in the bootloader. i get an ubuntu symbol for a few seconds then a black screen... i reinstalled grub2 and used the grub rescue screen to boot ubuntu. ran grub-install and rebooted. still the black screen. i'm assuming that this is some sort of graphics driver issue? also, i tried a "system test" and during the phase that changes the monitor resolutions the same black screen appeared, forcing me to reboot.
