Got it; thanks for the hint.

The installation seems to have been a mixture between BOOTP and DHCP
usage indeed; reinstalling from scratch resolved all problems. (This
happened to be abandoned playground, until now.)

I have encountered oddities, though. The dhcp3-server package has a bug
in the postrm script, and purging fai leaves FAI specific directories
behind. I will report on that later.

Bye; Kai
