I have intel pentium 4 x86 machine with radeon 9200 pro card.
After upgrade to 10.04 Ubuntu kernel 2.6.32-22 gives me a black screen same as many others.My knowledge is inadequate to rectify the problem.Please give me a step by step workaround to paste into terminal to get 10.04 working .

Even though I have nvidia I believe the first choice is to try the nomodeset command:

I had to do this:
boot from the cd, press F6 and then select the nomodeset option.
then
On first boot after install, press e on getting the GRUB bootloader.
Using arrow keys navigate to and delete quiet and splash and type the word nomodeset in their place
Press Ctrl and X to boot (low graphics mode)
