First version of fai is ready. It needs some tests, I'll do it this week.

How it works?

After boot script looks for bootfile-name option in dhcp leases files,
dhcp server should tell fai where is directory with configuration

In next step sctipt looks for file called the same as MAC address from
their network interface, tries to download it and it checks for first
specific line: "#!fai".

If file is wrong script looks for file named "default" and in last
step looks for local stored configuration.

The last step is runs installer with right configuration file.

Few FreeBSD installed ;)
