Anyone out there having experience with integrating FAI within OPSI (www.opsi.org)? Any suggestions for that? 
I already have a running opsi-environment but want to get Dual-Boot Systems.
So FAI shouldn't touch the Windows boot partition only shrink the 2nd partition when I Boot via pxe the fai-installation - but I would like to be able to install via FAI Linux-only systems,too. What would you suggest? Will it be possible to append a bootoption to the kernel of fai install to change the class from DUALBOOT to SINGLEBOOT ? or is there a better way to do that?

Thanks for any tipps
