Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

there is no need to load any driver in the grub shell. i dont even think this could work.
if you believe that your display driver is the cause of your misfortune, download the drivers from where "rakriege" suggested and install them. read the docs, they contain important stuff how to install the driver corectly.
besides: it is not the OS you cant get working, the os is linux ant it probably runs fine, its just the xserver with a niche (i think its gnome) session on it. but the console mode is still a fully operational os.
Have you entered text mode??you can enter multiuser textmode by adding a '3' to your kernel arguements in grub.at grub screen,press 'e' to edit the kernel arguements,just add a '3' to its end.once you reach there,either install nvidia driver and change the config,(read the nvidia driver README) or just run 'xf86config' from command line.It will re configure your X.after that install the nvidia driver.
