Hi Susanne,

In the editor for gnuplot, insert Plot Tics and then click the Save and 
Edit button.  The grid is automatically drawn where the major tic marks 
are specified.  You could try increasing your major tic mark interval 
and making use of minor tic marks between each interval.  Note that the 
grid only draws on the major tic marks though.

If you need something more customized, one hack that you can do is to 
add additional curves to your graph that are actually lines to "draw" 
your own grid.
