Thanks Thomas, you hit the nail on the head.
I did it slightly differently (without redoing the NFS root):
(1) copy grml kernel and aufs modules package to nfsroot
(2) bind mount /proc into nfsroot
(3) chroot into nfsroot
(4) install grml kernel image and aufs modules
(5) generate initrd in there
(6) copy the vmlinux and initrd to tftp/fai area
in principle that's all.
Thanks for the fast reply!
