I tried that Peter. It will still come up to a black screen with a blinking cursor and halt.

I tried to boot into text install and build the driver with rpm -ivh with rpmfusion and after both the free and nonfree drivers load, when I go to boot back into GUI with init 5, I get a nice little kernel panic.

What I don't understand is how Kunbuntu will load and F10 KDE won't. Is there a way to run the iso for F10 within Kunbuntu?
