I tried Linux Mint and I really liked it. But, there's a problem: it worked only once, the second time I tried to boot the screen went black and nothing else happened.
I know what's wrong: the driver for my Ati Radeon 9250 card doesn't work.
On Fedora, to solve this problem, I boot in run level 3 and turn the 3D acceleration off by commenting a line in Xorg.conf.
My questions are: with Linux Mint, the solution for this problem is the same? And if so, how can I boot without GUI, because I didn't see such options?
