Thanks, that worked.  I now have grml-small installed and bootable
from my existing grub.  I've done "apt-get update && aptitude update &&
aptitude install xserver-xorg xfonts-75dpi fluxbox" and can now run
X.  There's lots of free space on my 2 Gb drive.  :-)

I appear to have lots of broken (according to aptitude) packages.
I've got the stock grml-small three lines uncommented in
/etc/apt/sources.list ... should I fix that somehow?

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
