Ok, got it. Thanks for the clarification.

Yeah, it's a nice feature that I've been looking for long time ago, so 
that I know exactly which one to boot if HD, USB, CD all have bootable 
grml images. 

However, IMHO, it only goes half the way. It still isn't able to solve 
the problem that I want to boot two different version of grml-medium off 
the same device. I think a better approach is to use, say boot-signature, 
which is per boot folder, not per disk.

just my 2c.
