Well, i don't know exactely,
but i tell you my experiences with eeepc 901 go.

First, it's quite picky about bootable usb sticks. It ignores all my 
USB-Sticks, except the one with the http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEeePC 
netinstall boot image. Don't ask my why.
( so i don't have a idea how well current grml images would run )

Second, the hardware started being supported properly at kernel version 
2.6.28, you won't be happy with anything previous.

I'm very happy with:
debian lenny
+ grml-etc-core, etc...  from grml-testing
+ kernel 2.6.30 , openoffice, etc... from lenny-backports
+ eeepc-acpi-scripts from DebianEeePC

It's up to you to judge how much grml this is.
