Default ubuntu installation give me a black screen


i tried installing ubuntu last night (version 6.10 i believe) both the 64amd/intel and i386 editions

my system is listed in my sig.

my monitor is connected to my 1st graphics card with a dvi cable (i also tried the analogue cable on the 2nd card just to make sure ubuntu wasnt defaulting to the 2nd card down)

i get as far as the ubuntu logo and the orange progress bar sliding across just after the installation cd screen but after that i just get a black screen with a small _ in the top left, i have left it for a while to see if anything happens but nothing does.

does ubunto not like sli or nforce systems?

thanks all for preceding advice and help
