Intel Pentium 4, 2.4 Ghz, Nvidia Geforce4 MX440 video card. 1gb RAM. 
Multi boot system using grub2 with NTFS and Ext4 partitions.

After unsuccessful upgrade from b1.5  chose fresh install from x86 dvd. 
Standard install on UFS with KDE. Selected nvidia driver at install. 
Graphics test screen as usual, selected Nvidia, but continues to return 
to test screen each time selected without "do you want to keep" option 
appearing. Then selected skip (which worked in b1.5) but x fails to 
start. Reboot does not give option to rerun graphics set-up and x still 
does not start.

Did fresh install without nvidia driver option and selected nv at option 
screen. Same behaviour as above except the test screen does not return 
but x fails to start.

I know it is an old driver but has worked up to now with a bit of tweaking

Will leave system as is for a day in case info needed
