Please give 2009.05-rc1 a try and report feedback whether if works
for you or not. If it doesn't work please provide output of lspci of
a grml version which works for you (or even better execute
grml-hwinfo on a running and working grml system and mail me the
resulting info.tar.bz2).

Because you're blind: what are you usually using? brltty? speakup?
