As always, the first thing I test on Grml 2009.10 is its frugal 
installation, using grml2usb. I found it still not applicable to me 
because I need to frugally install grml to a self-boot ext2/3 partition. 

 grml2usb --grub

fails because grub2 installation to PBR is still broken. 

Using syslinux bootloader failed for me as well because syslinux refuses 
to work with ext2/3 partitions. 

I guess that the new "dd-able ISO" feature does not apply to me as well 
since it requires FAT partitions as well, I believe. I guess the only 
option left for me is to install grub-legacy within the live system now. 

No complain. I guess not everyone is fond of grub as myself, and even 
fewer believe that "every OS on the disk trying to take over the MBR" is 
a bad idea...

Well, grml2usb has improved a lot. The --grub is new comparing to the 
last version I tried. Good work. Thanks.
