accessing slackware install from install dvd


I find im unable to boot any linux distro after installing a nvidia geforce fx 5500 pci card. After a Google search I found what may be a solution but it requires me to edit etc/modprobe.d/blacklist. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to access the slackware install from the install dvd?

1. Insert the DVD
2. Boot from DVD
3. Type root and get root access.
4. Mount the / partition using:

Code:
mount /dev/hda2 /mnt -o rw
chroot /mnt /bin/bash
Replace hda2 with your root partition.

5. Now edit the blacklist file using:
Code:
nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
6. Save and exit and reboot.

Regards

Thank you sHyLoCk that did the trick. And thank you for the quick response Ive been pulling my hair out for 2 days trying to figure out what was going on with this machine. Now at least I have my favorite system back. Posting from Slackware now.
