The script named grml-autoconfig within grml2hd asked you for
setting it:

| [x] check for network devices and run pump (get ip-address via DHCP)

Either run grml-autoconfig and deactivate the dhcp option or
manually set CONFIG_DHCP='no' in /etc/grml/autoconfig.

Because max-mount-counts and interval-between-checks for ext3 is set
to '0' within grml2hd using tune2fs. This way you will never have an
unwanted, unexpected delay at booting your system just because of an
automatic filesystem check.
