I don't have a /boot/grub/menu.lst, but didn't Grub2 change this? I don't use the original Grub anymore. I don't know where your suggestion goes.

As for blacklist.conf, I will undo the change since you say I will still have problems. I assume only Grub's boot with nouveau.modeset=0 would be enough to fix this problem? Or is there something more?
Yes, sorry, GRUB 2 is different.

Edit /etc/default/grub and add the option to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT. For example, if that line currently reads 'GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet"', change it to 'GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet nouveau.modeset=0"'.

You'll still need to run update-grub (or is it update-grub2 now?) after editing the file.

I would keep the line in blacklist.conf, it won't hurt anything.
