    Default can't boot, only get a black screen

    Hi, I have a "Hp pavilion zv6000" Notebook and I was able to boot Backtrack 1.0
    smoothly but when i try to boot backtrack 2 after I hit Enter at boot i can see it loads but after de second line all i get is a black screen, I've tried waiting for 10 minutes and nothing hapends, i also tried every boot paremeter i could find and all i get is the black screen.
    my notebook has a "ATI MOBILITY RADEON Xpress 200 Series" video card
    I'm not shure if the video card is the problem but if it is, is there any way to
    replace the video drivers on BT2 with the ones from Backtrack 1.0 ??

    Thankyou for your time an forgive my bad english xD.
