Yes. FAI just passes the packages found in the configuration files to
the apt-get install command. Or you can use apt pinning with the file

If you use bootpd you can use T172 to supply it. dhcp version 3 is
currently broken and does not support user specified tags (like T172
or FAI_FLAGS). You could also use <nfsroot>/etc/fai/fai.conf for this,
but that more a dirty hack. But which are the reasons?
