but i think it is possible to install additional software via apt-get.
Is there a way to get fai to perform the installation ?

Hi Thomas,

I'm also using FAI on a Hetzner server, but I'm installing the machine 
standalone, i.e. from a ramdisk. AFAIK the rescue system at Hetzner 
cannot be changed, thus it cannot be used for FAI.

Best regards
