ok. on the time when everything stops, hit ctrl+alt+backspace
if anything happens then, preferably with the first 10 seconds of darkscreen, hit ctrl+alt+F6. you should get a root login prompt, or a bunch of crud about X failing. key until they disappear to the login. do so, then edit vi /etc/X11/xorg.config to your monitor's specs, then put "vesa" in as the driver until you can identify the driver/install etc., and run that driver under pirut.
this works on a via/p4 with nvidia 512mb. then do a final edit to that driver and reboot
mazel tov, dude.
