RE: Upgrade to Squeeze failed

Recommend burning a super grub iso http://www.supergrubdisk.org/wiki/SGD_Howto_make

Boot from it to gain access to file systems.

Remove /etc/X11/xorg.conf

and try to boot the system.

I am new to  linux, just relating what work for me before so, this info is coming with a few grains of salt..
