one command

mv  /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r)-nouveau.img  /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img

it puts the original initrd back in its place and will be used on the next

umm ok, 

there are multiple ways to install nvidias drivers. Its really not simple to 
cover them all. some ways like using the installer directly from nvidia 
replace a bunch of Xorg bits and the method to revert is reinstall a bunch of

other than tell them to undo whatever it was you did.
