Indeed, they seem incomplete.

It depends on how you load it. If you use GRUB, you can change the 
parameters temporarily by pressing 'e' on the entry you want to modify, 
and then IIRC it was 'enter' to boot with the current parameters, it's 
been a while since I used GRUB at all, let alone modify the parameters 
The permanent ones I do recall, in most distros update-grub generates 
the config file from /etc/default/grub, there's a line 
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=$a_quoted_string, add your new parameters at the end 
of the string.

And then what happened? Did you succeed? If not, at which point did you 
get stuck?

Last time I tried, it was sort of working. Last time I remember there 
was a pointer and systray corruption issue on Lubuntu ~10.04. I don't 
remember if I got to see it working correctly.
