Software Update broke my graphics

I just installed 10.6.3 from a retail disc on my desktop and everything was working fine (had to update one kext for the ethernet because it was running super slow with the default), so I figured I'd run Software Update. Well, it installed the updates, but when the computer restarted, all I saw on the screen were large blocks of colour, as if my graphics driver was screwed up. Is there any way I can roll this back, or boot into the command line and somehow replace the graphics driver for one that works?


Here's my system specs:

Motherboard: BioStar P43D3

Processor: Pentium E6500 Dual-Core

RAM: 2GB DDR3 PC1066

Graphics Card: ASUS EN8400GS (NVidia 8400 chipset)

Ethernet: Dynex DX-102


This is what my desktop screen looks like (flipped because I took the pic with Photobooth from my MacBook Pro)
