such a major one that Mint might want to hold off on release until this is fixed/worked around e.g. by including older xorg or driver?
there are loads of reports of nvidia problems with maverick if you google.
maybe try nvidia 256.x driver, seems 260.x with latest xorg may be the problem.
i don't know but i'm about to roll out on an all-nvidia network so i care.
amazing, how each ubuntu release has some major disaster like this?
edit: what i don't understand is why nouvou driver isn't working, did you first get a good boot on nouvou, then install nvidia, then dead?

this disables KMS so not something you'd want to use forever.

see if that lets you boot, then try installing nvidia driver, hopefully after rebooting you won't need nomodeset. no guarantees though.
maybe nouveau doesn't like newer nvidia cards? horrible showstopper bug for anyone hit. this did not happen on my old 7600GS - that loaded with nouveau fine.
One word, with the "e" between "mod" and "set". Spelling counts.
