Same question I wanted to ask since 2010.12 came out (as I also have
one of these shiny grml.org usb-keys with 2010.04~rc-something on it).

After searching the grml-wiki (after your trigger - thx!) I found

[1] http://wiki.grml.org/doku.php?id=usb&s=usb
[2] http://grml.org/grml2usb/

So it seems that downloading both ISOs (32bit/64bit) and


should do the trick. The usb-stick should be partitioned and formatted
mit fat16 (or you can use the "--fat16" option).

According to [3] everything else[tm] (e.g. memtest, freedos) should be
on the stick automatically.

Please be aware that I have not tested it (yet). Please tell me if
that worked! (Or if anyone knows better, let me know.)
