My Ubuntu install crapped out on me (Xorg and Nvidia drivers weren't playing nice) so I need to do a reinstall. Is there a Ubuntu guide for Breezy? I know the maintainer is sick but is there another one?

You mean an installation guide or a configuration guide?

Im pretty sure that installation and modifications from Hoary to Breezy just work the same.

The Ubuntu Guide is out of date for some things (certain codecs are no longer available in the repositories), but for more info on that, you can go to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RestrictedFormats

Also, the "extra repositories" info is out of date. You can see the first link in my sig for how to get those.

Otherwise, the Ubuntu Guide is fine for Breezy.

You want something like this: Ubuntu FAQ Guide (http://help.ubuntu.com/starterguide/C/faqguide-all.html)

The Ubuntu FAQ is based off the Ubuntuguide.org. It is also the same doc that is shipped on your desktop under System --> Help.
