This sounds strange. Are you speaking about Grml 2010.12?

It's supposed to work out of the box, if not it's either a bug in
X.org or in your hardware. :)

Should be the default, but you can force it running
'grml-x --force --display 7 ...'

For grml2hd: yes.

Could work (never tried on my own though), but at least until you've
a working setup I recommend using it inside gnome before.
Installing gnome-core and 'grml-x gnome-session' (IIRC it's called
gnome-session) should do that.

Hope this helps,
