Some experiences with grml 1.1 on a Dell Inspiron 530(nvidia chipset and 
graphics system) and a generic issue:

when running grml-x with a module option, but without windowmanager, it 
complains that the windowmanager with the name of the module doesn't exist.
I'd expect it just says "you didn't specify a windowmanager", but 
instead it seems to try to take the last argument as windowmanager name.

As of the hardware support for inspiron:
grml-x doesn't get an x system loaded - until I start it one time with 
the -fallback option.

_after_ this one start with fallback, I can start it again, without 
fallback - and then I get a better resolution and can work without the 
screen-scrolling that happens in fallback mode.

Let me know if you need and hints or info on the system.
