New install and Nvidia

I've tried twice in two days to do a new OEM install of Kubuntu 11.04. Both 
times it has failed after I have installed the proprietary Nvidia drivers with 
"Additional Drivers".

I did an OEM install, rebooted, installed the updates, rebooted and then 
installed the Nvidia drivers. After rebooting again, the splash screen was 
just a series of black/white lines and the KDE splash stopped part way through 
displaying the KDE logo.

I have searched the Internet and found this on Kubuntu Forums, Which wasn't much 

Any ideas?
