I did a chroot /mnt/sda1 (where I had previously mounted the
affected grml installation) and then entered the dpkg command that you
have sent. So I assume that should be the correct output, shouldn 
it? Is there room for mistakes?

That worked! Thanks a lot!!

When booting the corrupt system I do not even see a menu. It is
not possible to enter anything since as soon as 'GRUB' appears
the system hangs. 

But that doesn't matter now since with LILO everything works fine. 
Thanks again.
