Ubuntu 10.10 installed without a hitch. It requested a reboot after installation, and I selected yes. It then came up with a weird screen full of 2s and hearts. I powered down the unit and booted it again. The desktop goes through the post normally but after the post it just goes blank. I do not see the grub menu so I cannot get into the recovery mode to modify the grub menu. Any ideas how I can get a command prompt? The installation CD boots normally. but cannot access a recovery mode from there. I would be grateful for any help.
