It seems you have at least 2 CD-ROM drives, right?
What happens if you put the grml-CD into the other CD-ROM drive?

Ok, let's see what happens if you run the commands manually (when
dropped to the busybox shell).

Please start with:

mount -t squashfs /cdrom/GRML/GRML /GRML -o loop,ro

Please also provide output of:

ls -la /dev/cdrom /cdrom /cdrom/GRML/GRML /dev/hda /dev/hdc /dev/hdd /GRML
