I installed GRML to hardrive on a laptop a while back (grml-version
tells me "grml 2011.05 Release Codename Just Mari [2011.05.29]). I've
been doing the regular `aptitude dist-upgrade` with the official
Debian repository ( http://cdn.debian.net/debian/ ), am currently
running the 3.2.0-3-686-pae kernel, etc...so AFAIK it's more or less
an up-to-date Debian Sid. It's been working fine, but given that
installing grml to hardrive is not recommended or supported, I'm
wondering if I should convert my system over to straight-up Debian and
how complicated that might be. An `aptitude purge grml` will remove
the grml package, but I'm not sure that really does much in this regard.

TIA for any clarification,
