I don't understand what you're really talking about. But looks like
you try to run grml-x on your harddisk installation as normal user?
This wont't work due to restricted sudo permissions. Run 'grml-x
-force -nostart fluxbox' as root to manually (re)build xorg.conf on
a harddisc installation. If that's not what you mean please provide
exact error messages, I don't really get what you're talking about.
