still problem in remote mount

Ok, I made a little step ahead by modifying subroutines, precisely the client can ping the 
master when I use the IP but seems can't resolve names. If I redefine FAI_LOCATION directly 
inside get_fai_fir putting


it works, it say class space mounted, and then halts again. So I guess there is something wrong 
in my hosts file, but it's simply: localhost.localdomain localhost serine serine nodo00 nodo01 nodo02 nodo03 nodo04

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

so why it can see but not nodo00?

My dhcp.conf (in /etc/dhcp3/) is:

# dhcpd.conf for fai
# replace faiserver with the name of your install server

# deny unknown-clients;
option dhcp-max-message-size 2048;
use-host-decl-names on;
#always-reply-rfc1048 on;

filename "pxelinux.0";

# the server from which to load the initial boot file if different
# from server-name (if the DHCP server is not also the TFTP server)
next-server nodo00;

subnet netmask {
    option routers;
    option domain-name "beowulf";
    option domain-name-servers;
    option time-servers nodo00;
    option ntp-servers nodo00;
    option nis-domain "beowulf";
    option nis-servers nodo00;
    server-name "nodo00";
    option root-path "/usr/lib/fai/nfsroot,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,acregmin=1800,ac

# perl -ane ' {print "host atom {hardware ethernet $1;fixed-address atom}";}'
#host demohost {hardware ethernet 0:2:a3:b5:c5:41;fixed-address demohost;}
host nodo01 {hardware ethernet 00:13:d4:7a:83:ee;fixed-address nodo01;}

Any idea?
