Post Ubuntu 9.10 does not start after kernel selection from Grub menu

I installed Python 2.4 and then removed already present Python 2.6. After restart, when i selected the working kernel, that white ubuntu symbol splashed and screen went black with two small lines at the top.. it doesnt go beyond that. Please help me. I tried selecting other kernels. It did not work. I used "nomodeset" by editing the the kernel at the grub.. I could just start bash..

Are you saying there is NO data coming up on the terminal after the kernel first starts to boot??

If not, that points to a kernel problem I believe.

Is your boot loader set to 'quiet'.. where you can't see alot of the terminal messages upon booting?

You have to excuse me, I am not tooo familiar with Ubuntu's boot process... but know it is almost identical to a pure debian one.

When you changed/deleted python... are you SURE you did not inadvertently delete some other important files?

Can you access the partition via another copy of linux.. and reinstall the original files?
