Hermann got there before me. The only thing I would add as the author of 
the page/podcast is that although the audio walkthrough is for GRML 
2008.11 the process is very much the same for GRML 2009.5 (I think 
possibly identical).

I also would suggest booting into the live CD and installing from there, 
I think that offers greater flexibility of the install process. Also if 
you are using software speech output it is possible to modify the 
installed system from the live CD to make it come up speaking 
automatically (IE. no need to type swspeak when booting finishes), my 
audio walkthrough tells you how to do this.
