I wanted to setup fai on my gateway,
so the machines inside LAN ( dhcp method ) can kickstart debian.,
using local debian mirror.

I've setup the fai.conf and run fai-setup,
all seems run well, but it fails during dhcp3-client setup,
the tail of logs are :

Automatically converting /etc/network/interfaces succeeded.
Old interfaces file saved as interfaces.dpkg-old.

Adding additional packages to /usr/lib/fai/nfsroot:

Configuration file `/etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf'
 ==> File on system created by you or by a script.
 ==> File also in package provided by package maintainer.
   What would you like to do about it ?  Your options are:
    Y or I  : install the package maintainer's version
    N or O  : keep your currently-installed version
      D     : show the differences between the versions
      Z     : background this process to examine the situation
 The default action is to keep your current version.
*** dhclient.conf (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ? 

dpkg: error processing dhcp3-client (--configure):
 EOF on stdin at conffile prompt
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Then it returns me to the prompt.
It seems like the configure script can not catch the " I " ?

May I have some suggestion ?
