Create an initrd if you need it via running:

# update-initramfs -c -t -k $(uname -r)

Adjust your /boot/grub/menu.lst according to your needs and run
'update-grub' then (if you want to :)).

The initrd is not shipped by default with grml 0.9.

But very probably you even do not need an initrd on your system at
all, so just remove the initrd lines in your menu.lst and try
booting then (can be done interactive in grub as well to test it).
