How to resolve ubuntu hang on boot (brown swirly screen of death?)?

I am pretty new at ubuntu and linux in general. I'm configuring a new installation and going ga ga for all nifty effects compiz gives me, and then I think I went one check box too far. (I enabled reflection and further enabled it for windows..not even sure what that means, but it sounded cool. My piddly integrated graphics card seems to disagree.)

"Seems like this thread has the easiest answer for you.

Just swap on the tty (Ctrl+Alt+F1), login there and run this command

gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz

after that, logout and jump back to the login screen (Ctrl+Alt+F7) and try logging in."
