I guess the man page of fai(8) explains it better, since -c and -N
from fai-diskimage are passed to the fai call itself.
-N executes the scripts in the class/ subdirectory. -c just sets the
variable $cmdlineclasses which is then used by class/01-classes. So if
you do not have the script class/01-classes
the classes from -c are not used. If you rename 01-classes to
99-classes you can change the order of the classes defined by -c.

BTW, I never use -c and -N at the same time.
