Yes...I've seen something very similar with a pendrive. Grub will load from my harddrive, and i select the DSL entry for the frugal system installed on my harddrive. If the pendrive was attached when i booted, that is the system that gets loaded...if it was not attached, the regular HD frugal system will be loaded.
I have no idea how this works, or if it's intentional.
Earlier issue: It would be interesting to know what those additional processes in the 2.4 system are. It would be a logical guess that this is related to the increased ram use.
It's possible that just the fact that you are running one system from harddrive and one from CD is making a difference.
