MAybe the nfsroot is not exported by your install server.

Seems that you have an old version of FAI. Please upgrade to 2.4.1. In
the new version there's a file created called vmlinuz-install. Use
this file for booting with PXE. PXE can't use boot images that are
created with imggen. 

BTW, the next FAI version will include a nice tool for managing the
PXE configuration files.

regards Thomas
