Quoting from Janusz's mails he sent me off the list:

,---- [  ]
| I solved the problem with plug and play devices. My previous grml2hd
| installation was not been finished correctly, because of some error.
| [...]
| I AM able to use all included screen readers and even install Gnome. I
| Am very sorry for my previous posting. but error messages releated to sound
| cart really displaied on my screen. The reason was, that i installed grml by
| using all recommended choices. After reinstalling grml, all devices are
| awailable. So algorithms for hardware autodetection are working fine. Very
| well done.
