I am tryng to update the kernel to the quantal version, but my resolution gets screwed up. Can someone tell the correct way to update the kernel and have my nvida card working correctly as well?

Remove the nVidia drivers, update, then install the nVidia drivers.
NOTE: This assumes the drivers are compatible with the new kernel.

Do I use synaptic or jockey to remove the nvidia drivers?
