Hi, I burnt a LIVE CD 2.0 of amd64-k8. After I try to boot, I get only a blank screen and nothing happens. xorg.conf does not have anything except the fonts statements. I have a GEForce 6100 video card. Most of the boot options except the live and live-failsafe does not work. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

This is again a nvidia driver issue... It seems that the live CD might be using the incorrect driver (as nvidia decided that they have to make 3 different drivers for their cards, and that does not count the open source community driven "nv" driver, that sometimes does not work on some of the cards either! Don't you just love closed source stuff! Cheers,
