Default Great Graphics, No terminal screen Nvidia 96.43

When I install 96.43.01 with my NV25 GeForce4 card, the graphic programs
really work well, but I have NO minimize or X buttons, and when I open
up a terminal window, its only a white box... I have to set xorg.conf
to 'nv' to get a terminal window... (using ctrl-alt-F1) How do I return
the simple things???

Without any extra information, I'm guessing you're using a broken SuSe version that assumes that if the GLX_ext_texture_from_pixmap extension exists, then you're running a composite manager.

If that's not the case, you'll need to provide an nvidia-bug-report.log while the problem is happening.

If I could open a term window, I would... When I try to open a term window,
all I get is a white square. I'm using Ubuntu Gutsy/Gnome.

Hit ctrl-alt-F1 to switch to a virtual terminal and do it from there.
