Your package list config files go in 
config/package_config/MACHINE_CLASS_NAME where MACHINE_CLASS_NAME is 
what you defined for the host in the config/class/* section.

NFSROOT is the package_config for building the nfs boot environment that 
your clients use during PXE boot for install (for instance).

However, you'll probably want to read through the other package_config 
files and docs so that when your machine gets multiple classes assigned 
it still does what you expect.
