I leave the kernel alone. That's too scarey! The machine is an older 
Gateway with onboard graphics. Kubuntu detects the card as i810, and the 
driver as i810. The monitor is a nice 17" labeled SYS, and Knoppix 
detects it as that. Kubuntu just says "Plug 'n Play".

In terms of fixing things, the last few times it has fouled up, it has 
"fixed itself" as I reported. Eventually, things work out. That's goofy 
and bothers me a good deal. It just makes no sense that the boot 
sequence should display properly, but when X starts, or at least, when I 
log in, things go south and the screen goes black. Eventually, as I 
indicated, even that resolves, and I'm back up and going.

Any hints?
