Can you describe the problems inb more detail ? Why didn't you contact
me directly ??? 6 hours of debugging is to much !

I think you want to install a woody system with FAI. There were some
problems with FAI 2.2.2 and woody but most of them are fixed in the
new version in the CVS tree. But again, send an email to
fai@informatik.uni-koeln.de and describe your problems.

The fastest way to install machines is to fix the problem you have with
FAI. Writing your own install script will surely not lead to a
installed system in a short time.

So please contact me.
