No problem. :-)

Simple: The first think to boot is in fact (as mentioned in my original 
post ;-) ) "/dev/sda". There is my "normal" GRUB. So if I turn on my 
computer, the GRUB in the MBR of my scsi disk gets loaded.

Now I have to load my GRUB on the “boot sector" of the correct partion of my 
USB disk ("/dev/sdb3").

Note: I have a Debian Sarge on my USB disk with GRUB in the MBR (if i remember 
the installation correctly). Nevertheless, my LFS GRUB is installed in 
the "boot sector" of the third partition.

My GRUB on the USB hard disk gets loaded an presents me its boot menu. There 
starts now the booting of my LFS. :-)
