Both - FAI needs some things properly working, and Ubuntu initramfs
seems to have some problems with it.

As Robert explained, the way he explains it in the Wiki page should
circumvent these problems.

Just, you need somehow to prevent fai-mirror from pulling the packages
from the fai base.tgz into the fai-mirror. They should not be needed
anyway, as these packages _are_ already in the base.tgz - even lesse are
they needed when you use your own image.
