[Grml] Syslinux timeout and grml2usb

I'm building a fileserver from an hp ProLiant MicroServer and GRML, with
quite a bit of customization on GRMLCFG.

While I sweated quite a bit over the best way to add the additional
package I required (e.g. bacula-sd), this is not the subject ;-)

When I copy a GRML64 ISO to an USB stick, isolinux will do a 30 second
timeout. The syslinux with GRML64 will not do a timeout, while one with
a 32 bit GRML will. So I suppose usb2linux does something wrong for a 64
bit GRML. In case it matters, this is run on a 64 bit Ubuntu Natty.

While I would prefer to use a 64 bit Linux in case I upgrade the memory
of the MicroServer to the maximum of 8 GB, I can live with a 32 Bit
kernel for now, with just 1GB memory.
