Alright, did it. fvwm runs without problems in monochrome, just like in 
the older version.

How should I? I haven't even done it myself once!

OK so far, I made a grfconfig file and "grfconfig /dev/grf5 grfmodes" 
configures some modes for the board. But who can I convince the X server 
to actually use one of these? Some days ago I caught a line like
startx -- "mode 3 -dev /dev/grf5"
here on the mailinglist, but it doesn't work. Reading manpages for startx, 
xinit and Xserver didn't get me any further either.
