How to prevent new installations when I have already installed my client through LAN boot?

I'm using FAI to automatically install Debian Squeeze in a laptop of mine.
I've been able to do everything that I wanted by reading the documentation,
except for one thing: every time the installation finishes (and the system
reboots automatically, as I ask it to), the recently installed client boots
again through the LAN (as expected) but begins the installation process
again (something that I want to avoid).

Is there an automatic way to make the client prevent itself from
reinstalling after the first install? I want it to install itself again
only if needed using the fai-chboot program, but not every time.

Thanks in advance.
