hello list,

  i am new to the list and trying to use FAI for a fancy setup i am 
building :) 

  I will use an AOE storage blade. This mean that if the kernel is AOE 
aware there should be no need for nfs or things like this. I wondered if 
anyone has any experiences on this ?

  So my question is , can we build a special kernel for FAI that will be 
AOE enabled and make it so that FAI loads the filesystem image using a 
local mount instead of nfs ?

  I think i know how to change the kernel used by FAI to boot, now i 
need to replace nfs with an etherdrive mount of /dev/eth10.5 :)
