Default 100.14.06 (beta) X64 and X86 Ubuntu ECS 8500GT Not Detected

Tried new drivers on 2 diff builds of ubuntu feisty x64 first then Ubuntu feisty x86, the card is not
recognised .

1.After install on x64 ubuntu, I end up with a blank screen and have to reboot.
2.After install on x86 Ubuntu wich I have decieded to stick with for now gdm
tries to start about 4 times then gives me an xserver error find the log files below,
for ubuntu x86 with nvidia 100.14.06 (beta) drivers.

Any help would be appeciated as I just removed a ati x1950 due to a poor driver problem giving me a strange blue tint in myth tv, I fear I may have bought a "too new" card for linux

You're using 1.0-9755 in the attached X log, and your 8500GT is not supported in that driver. You'll need to use 100.14.06, and if problems persist, please generate and provide an nvidia-bug-report.log.

thanks for prompt reply after hrs of mucking around this line from your ubuntu sticky sort of gave me a hint why the wrong drivers may be active.

sh NVIDIA-Linux-version.run --x-module-path=`X -showDefaultModulePath 2>&1 | cut -d, -f1` --x-library-path=`X -showDefaultLibPath 2>&1`

So any other ubuntu feisty users out there have this problem
1.put this script into the same dir as 100.14.06 nvidia drivers, will have to edit it for x64 drivers.
2.open a terminal windows and type
sudo init 1
3.go into dir with nvidia driver file probably /home/"login name"/Desktop
4.type chmod +x NVIDIA <tab> <enter>
5.type ./nv to run script
6.follow install instructions

thats what finally did it for me... enjoy

script to put in dir with driver .run file make sure to rename it to just NV
