grml2hd: if you want to use kind of static system (like a typical
harddisk installation)

grml2usb: if you want to use grml in the typical live mode :)

No, sadly not yet, see
http://bts.grml.org/grml/issue466 and

I was just running out of time and therefore couldn't work on the
redesign of grml2usb. The reason is that it's not just grml2usb
which needs to be adjusted when we change the directory layout, so
we need to design that beforehand. But it's definitely something we
don't forget and will work on, promised. :)
