Hi Adrian,

since this is a major upgrade, you should read the NEWS file for FAI 4:

This is because now we use dracut instead of live-boot inside the
nfsroot as default. Have a look at option -l for fai-make-nfsroot when
you like to use live-boot.

You should make a diff between all files in /etc/fai of you old FAI
3.x config and the default files of FAI 4 in /etc/fai.
