Problem in finding hard disks

yes, I have such a configuration file, and I have an image of kernel 2.6 (that supports SATA 
disks), but I don't know where I have to put this image inside the FAI path to make FAI itself 
use it at the boot of the client. Could you tell me what is the exact path?
Thank you.
