update to this one: with a clean fai 2.8.4 install and nothing changed
but the correct faiserver hostname in /etc/fai.conf I can make a cd with
simple examples, that boots just fine.

I get the same error as above as soon as i change the KERNELPACKAGE
variable in /etc/fai/make-fai-nfsroot.conf, to use the
kernel-image-2.6.8-fai_1_i386.deb kernel image, ( and not forget to
create a new nfsroot!!!) and then a new cd.

Gonna try this later, but my custom config cd will probably work just
fine with a 2.4 FAI Kernel.

Bug report on it's way.
