I assume you have the grml version of 2009.05 This should work:
Press 'c' at the menu to  give you a grub prompt and then enter the
following commands

grub> rootnoverify (hd0,2)
grub> chainloader +1

That ought to transfer from grub on the live-cd to lilo on your grml
installation and boot up from there.

Best Wishes
