there is an ubuntu package called "Envy" by Alberto Milone which will take
all the hassle out of re-installing the nVidia drivers.  Not sure if you can
get it from a repo, but you can d/l the .deb from his website [1] and just
use dpkg -i on it.  Then just run "sudo envy".  Fetches the latest driver
from nVidia into the bargain.

I've also used his scripts on Feisty by just uncommenting the Feisty
discovery code he's put in to one of the Python scripts.  Worked flawlessly
as it did on Edgy too.
