Thank you very much for all your hints - Thomas and the others.
I think I will make it run with a initrd and its not a space problem since I
have 512 MB RAM in the smallest version.
I have a separate PowerPC machine in the development environment to set up all
this stuff and some Intel PCs for prototyping.

I agree with you.
But another word concerning the Win2k machine - just to appear not too stupid
The target is a product which is already in field. We have redundant
controllers based on PowerPC (my install client). At customer side I will
install from an HP-UX machine or the Win2k craft terminal or the redundant
controller, depending on the state of our product. I mentioned only the Win2k
stuff because I think that's the hardest (and most disgusting) part. The rest
will work for sure.
But you see. Changing the Win2k machine at customer side will be
1. Really expensive
2. Not be accepted by the customers

Thank you for your work on FAI - it really cool!
