What does your make-nfs-root.conf file contain?
(grep KERNEL /etc/fai/make-fai-nfsroot.conf)

For me the capital "S" is not a problem...

Here my nfsroot/boot directory (looks pretty much the same):

/usr/lib/fai/dapper-nfsroot/boot# ll
total 1908
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  531144 Apr  9 02:44
-rw-r--r--  1 root root   32985 Apr  9 02:20 config-2.6.16-fai-kernels
-rw-r--r--  1 root root   94760 Oct 25  2005 memtest86+.bin
-rw-r--r--  1 root root      48 Apr  9 02:44 patches-2.6.16-fai-kernels
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 1268112 Apr  9 02:44 vmlinuz-2.6.16-fai-kernels

Make sure that on the install server the /boot/fai/vmlinux-install
(not in the nfsroot environment!!) is the same file as

ls1:/usr/lib/fai/dapper-nfsroot/boot# cmp vmlinuz-2.6.16-fai-kernels /boot/fai/vmlinuz-install
ls1:/usr/lib/fai/dapper-nfsroot/boot# echo $?

If "echo $?" gives something different than something is broken...
