I don't think it is quite that easy.

AFAIK this bootfrom cheatcode only works with iso's, that use the same 
kernel. That does not go very well together with my idea of having GRML 
and Knoppix on the same usb-pen.

Because of that problem, I tried an grml2hd install on the flashpen, and 
now I have en ordinary grub bootmanager to work with and not syslinux.
