Hi Robert,
thanks a lot!
I just went over your new wiki page.
I will test it, when I find some time.

Small note concerning problems with NFS v4 in NFS section:
When switching my FAI server from Debian squeeze to wheezy, I had also 
much trouble with NFSv4 (exports, idmapd)...
Finally I got it to work without creating a "dummy directory", I just 
had to give a different fsid to each export:


This setup works fine on my wheezy server for squeeze, wheezy and Ubuntu 
trusty clients
