I don't understand what you mean by "userspace". You seem to be using it
to talk about the existing directory structure, rather than partitioning,
formatting and mounting a new disk?

I'm assuming that anything you can do from a clean reboot from an FAI
NFS root, you should be able to do from an existing Debian install with
fai installed.
