I see this when I look into the simple examples:

henning@:/usr/share/doc/fai-doc/examples/simple/class$ grep DHCPC *
50-host-classes:	echo "FAIBASE DHCPC DEMO" ;;
50-host-classes:	echo "FAIBASE DHCPC DEMO XORG GNOME";;
50-host-classes:	echo "FAIBASE DHCPC DEMO" ;;
50-host-classes:	echo "FAIBASE DHCPC" ;;

You must have something like that defined for your host, somewhere.

By the way, did you look into FAI_CLASSES to check in the logs, if the
class DHCPC is really defined?

I'm not sure if I remember the context of your question right, but that
should probably the first to do - check which classes are defined.

Maybe there's another /etc/network/interfaces files for another class -
depending on if you work with a new, clean configspace or if your new in
a complany using FAI since long time.
