This is the man page for grml2hd. If you are not exhausted and
disenchanted by the effort please give it a read.

It gives
GRML2HD_NONINTERACTIVE=1 grml2hd partition=/dev/sdsa5 mbr=/dev/sda5
filesystem=ext3 user=janusz

(the last goes all on one line)
Debian will still ask for your real name to personalise some things.
The file to edit is /etc/grml/config
- - -

If you do manage to install OK then make a grub floppy. As root do grub -
which gives you a grub prompt

grub> root (hd04)

Which is grub talk for sda5. Then put a formatted floppy in the drive and do

grub> setup (fd0)

This floppy will boot straight into your installed system. Then to boot XP
you only have to take the floppy out and it boots as normal.

Best Wishes
