According to the grml-live documentation[1] you can run grml-live in
a plain Debian-Installation.

[1] http://grml.org/grml-live/#deploy-on-debian

So you CAN install Debian with grml-debootrap[2]

[2] http://grml.org/grml-debootstrap/

but you also can perform an installation by any means you're
comfortable with.

After you have a running virtual machine you can install grml-live
like it is described in [1].
