That's what I also thought in the beginning. However, it turned out that 
when I logged in to the client over ssh during installation and manually 
run ifconfig from there, this always solved the problem, even though it 
was long after the portmapper had been started. It really seemed as if 
the ifconfig statement in the customization script had no effect.

in /fai/scripts (i.e. /usr/local/share/fai/scripts on the server)
