I just wanted to install grml to USB using the following stick:

# fdisk -lu /dev/sdb

Disk /dev/sdb: 8011 MB, 8011087872 bytes
32 heads, 63 sectors/track, 7761 cylinders, total 15646656 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x7d815235

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1   *          63    15646175     7823056+  83  Linux

After launching grml2usb, the following happens:

# grml2usb /home/daten/images/grml/grml_sid_20090404.iso /dev/sdb1
Using ISO /home/daten/images/grml/grml_sid_20090404.iso
Identified grml flavour "grml-daily-sid".
Copying files. This might take a while....
Note: grml flavour grml-daily-sid is being installed as the default booting system.

    raise child_exception

Does it have sth. to do that in the meantime I formatted the stick with ext2?
