sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
sudo apt-get remove nvidia-current
Thanks for the help! I managed to recover by first doing 'sudo apt-get remove nvidia-current',
then copying the original xorg.conf back... then
deleting the xorg-xserver-nouvweau (or similiarly named) driver and reinstalling...
then changing the device to 'nouveau' (from vesa) in the original xorg.conf!
So I'm now back on nouveau - my first ever recovery from a failed nvidia install.
Now to try to find out why the nvidia driver 'cannot copy vbios to system ram' :O
