It's possible, but I think NFS access is more flexible. Why do you
need a special distribution ?

Anyway, in FAI 2.0 (will be released in may) the variable
$FAI_DEBMIRROR is the location of the debian mirror (default a NFS
location) which is mounted. You should specify the location as
"/dev/hdc" for example.
