Default 7050PV support?

I just installed Ubuntu Feisty Fawn on my new machine, which has Nvidia 7050 PV onboard graphics. I tried installing the latest stable "new" Nvidia driver, 1.0-9755, using Ubuntu's Restricted Drivers Manager, but only got a black screen when I rebooted. I get a "no screens found" error when I try the open source nv driver. I have also tried Envy, the python script for ubuntu and debian to install Nvidia drivers, with the same black screen result. In looking at the supported cards list for the latest stable and the beta release of the drivers, 100.14.06, I don't see the 7050 PV listed. Does anyone know if there is an Nvidia release that supports this video chipset, or if not when one is expected? The vesa driver is working for now, but 1024x768 on a 1440x900 flat panel is somehow not very satisfying. Thanks for any information.
