Hm, both disks contain grub and both disks can boot their initial installed 

So I don't get the problem.

disk 0 has a partition with debian squeeze and grub added to the mbr. When I 
put disk 0 in first place of BIOS bootdrives, that grub is able to boot that 

disk 1 has a partition with debian squeeze too and this time grub was added to 
the mbr of disk 1. So when I change the order of BIOS bootdrives and place 
disk 1 at first position - I can boot into the second debian squeeze 

Both installations "know" about the other installation, so uid of all 
partitions is right on both systems - but none of the grub instances is able 
to boot the linux from the other drive. Which never was an issue with grub1 ;)

kind regards
