       fai-setup - Setup script for Fully Automatic Installation (FAI)




       Fully  Automatic  Installation  (FAI)  is  used  to  provide unattended
       installation of Debian GNU/Linux operating systems with a very flexible
       class-based  system.   fai-setup  is  a shell script written for FAI to
       create the initial NFSROOT directory, add that  directory  to  the  NFS
       exports   configuration  file  (/etc/exports),  prepare  the  files  as
       necessary to create the  network  boot  floppy  disk,  and  create  the
       initial fai user that is used for copying over the installation logs to
       a centralized directory on the server.  make-fai-nfsroot(8)  is  called
       to create the initial NFS root directory.

       fai-setup should be called after each change to /etc/fai/fai.conf.


       All options are also passed to make-fai-nfsroot.

       -e     Expert  mode.  Do  not  add  entries  to  /etc/export and do not
              restart the nfs nserver.


       This program is part of FAI (Fully Automatic  Installation).   See  the
       FAI  manual  for  more  information  on  how to use fai-setup.  The FAI
       homepage is
       make-fai-nfsroot(8), exports(5)


              The FAI configuration file.
              The configuration file for make-fai-nfsroot.
              The NFS configuration file for exported filesystems.
