has someone also test this?

I have install the newest fai (3.3.2) from: 
deb http://www.informatik.uni-koeln.de/fai/download lenny koeln
add the key gpg -a --recv-keys AB9B66FD; gpg -a --export AB9B66FD |
apt-key add -

I have copy my config space and called make-nfs-root, fai-mirror and
fai-cd and my debian etch stick was ready. And install a debian
system. :-) Fai-usb-stick boots fine.

Than I try to modify config files and /srv/fai/config to install a
Karmic from the stick which run Karmic Koala.

I have take some config ideas from:

Some problems occur: 
- On the usb stick grub does not boot. "GRUB" was the last message.
  May be a problem with grub_pc?
- The kernel parameter "hostname=demohost" does not change the 
  hostname on the install client. But I can see it in /proc/cmdline  

Now I am not sure is this the right and easy way? 

Should I better use:  
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/fai/ppa/ubuntu karmic main 
experimental fai

Fai-cd image boot and install a client in a virtuell machine and also
a real cd works on an a real client. 

thanks Andreas
