Interesting. We decided to switch from vesafb-tng back to "normal"
vesafb, as vesafb-tng caused too many problems for our taste.

Does booting via 'nofb' (just enter this at the bootprompt) work for
you? What does 'fbset -i' say on grml 0.5?

Ah, exactly what I expected. :)

Some orinoco/pcmcia-based WLAN cards aren't loaded by default, yes.
We will extend udev (which does the autoloading basically) as soon
as we have enough feedback about grml 0.6.
