So which software repository is actually used? I have a stock debian and 
added the GRML repo, to have a look what´s in there. I found 29 packages 
and wondering now, which part of debian you are using. Is this just 
added to make the "pure" debian unstable a bit more convenient and

Is it possible to set up grml with "testing"? Thats what i have right 
now, but i dont like the debian installer, and i dont want to download 
all the KDE-libs when choosing "desktop-install" and so on (when doin a 
new install on another machine). You know the hassles of the Installer :-)

Thanks in advance,
