An extra space at line 351:
rm -rf /usr /lib/nvidia-current/xorg/xorg

causes the script to do an rm -rf on the /usr directory for people installing in ubuntu.

Totally uncool dude!!! The script deletes everything under /usr. I just had to reinstall linux on my pc to recover.

Removing the space will fix this. Probably should do it quickly!!!

Ya this happened to me. I wasn't sure what went wrong, but chaos ensued shortly after I ran the install script. I have to work tommorow, and require my computer, so this could be a late night reinstalling/recovering my personal files. Oh well, I guess that is what I get for alpha testing ;D
