http://wiki.grml.org/doku.php?id=persistency states this:
to enable the snapshoting choose the persistent mode from the boot menu, 
or add 'persistent=nofiles' to the boot command line, for example 'grml 
Just below it shows the USB layout with GRMLCFG. For clarity can we add;
"Configuration in GRMLCFG partition is automatically processed by 
grml-autoconfig. This can be suppressed with 'noautoconfig' in boot 
command line."

  I reviewed my field notes and retested with grml-2011.05. It is working 
as in that release. My notes only referred to 'save-config --help' and wiki. 
My notes did not make clear which files from|to /etc were in from GRMLCFG and 
which were from live-rw. Mixing save-config and live-snapshot IMHO made 
things too complex.
