[olpc-help] USB2VGA adapter on the XO

I bought the usb2vga dongle mentioned in the wiki pages.

plugging the dongle into the XO does not seem to trigger the needed device(s) creation, although something does show up via dmesg

I came across these instructions: http://www.winischhofer.eu/linuxsisusbvga.shtml

but i don't know if this driver will work with the XO

I don't even know where the equivalent of grub or lilo is on the system, nor how to pass kernel options, if that's possible. 

any help is greatly appreciated.
