In the future (don't ask my when), FAI will be split into several fai
package (fai-server, fai-nfsroot,..), so an update will be more easy.

Updating the usual package in the nfsroot it easy by using

< mount /proc to nfsroot>
chroot chroot $NFSROOT apt-get update
chroot chroot $NFSROOT apt-get upgrade
