netboot strategie

I'm using netboot to install a system using FAI.  Now what are the
best strategies to reboot the system.

I use 
fai-chboot -IBv hostname

to install a client.  This works.  Then the install system disables
that entrie, so on the next boot the client boots from the localdist.

But the documentation says that the first bootdevice should be the
NIC, and the second the hard disk.  Thus when my client reboots after
install it complains about not begin able to find the install kernel.

A way around the problem is set netboot to boot from localhost.

Am I missing anything here?  Or is this the way to do it?

Thank you in advance,
