Thanks, Matthew. I thought of the same thing, although I'd suggested he try to
boot into a previous kernel. His problem is that the boot gets stuck right
before the blue splash screen, when the word "grub" briefly flashes in the
upper left hand corner of the screen - right at that point, his machine just
stops. Any other suggestions?
