Am running 9.04 Ubuntu on a T60 with an ATI x1300 Graphics card

Have been facing some minor trouble with the card / graphics so
decided to see if updating to the ati card driver fglrx i think would

so using synaptic i installed fglrx (i cannot remember the exact
package name) and along with it some more associated packages. It
asked for a machine restart and after this i get a messed up modern
art screen and no response from the keys except a forced power off.

Have tried to use the recover mode from the boot options and i can
access the root terminal but am not sure what i should do to recover
the system

Meaning what to uninstall ??

any ideas ?? will be grateful
