in the meantime, I read about the new features in FAI 3.3, and decided
to upgrade my FAI server. This made the problem mostly go away, and I
now have a probably almost working nfsroot-i386. The only piece which
is still obviously wrong, is the amd64 kernel which is installed
alongside the i386 binaries, and no i386 kernel.

In my NFSROOT config file, I have:

PACKAGES aptitude I386
linux-image-2.6.26-2-i386 aufs-modules-2.6.26-2-i386

PACKAGES aptitude AMD64
grub lilo
linux-image-2.6.26-2-amd64 aufs-modules-2.6.26-2-amd64

Kind regards,
