Default Lubuntu 10.04 does not start after installing GeForce 2 Go drivers

I know that GeForce 2 Go is old and probably unsupported. But I just want to get the drivers working. I downloaded this driver:
http://www.nvidia.es/object/linux_di....43.16_es.html
I installed it after a lot of problems, I had this problem:
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=49951
So I used the trick in the third post.
But now, Lubuntu does not work!
There is just the typical _ character in the up-left corner. Does not start.
Only the recovery mode works.
Itīs Lubuntu 10.04 x86, with a Dell Inspiron 2650.
Any idea?

Sometimes Ubuntu 10.04 will be switched to a VT with a blinking cursor at boot. Try switching to another VT (e.g. by hitting alt+F2) to see if you get a login prompt.

Hey danix,
Sorry about this, but I formatted and installed Debian since Lubuntu was working like sh*t
So, can you please tell me how should I install the drivers?
I donīt want to get a broken OS again.
