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

SYNOPSIS
       fai-setup

DESCRIPTION
       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 creates the initial NFSROOT directory
       and the configuration space.  It sets up the NFS exports configuration
       file (/etc/exports), and create the initial fai user that is used for
       copying over the installation logs to a centralized directory on the
       server.  fai-make-nfsroot(8) is called to create the initial NFS root
       directory.

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

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

       -C CFDIR
              Use CFDIR as configuration directory. Default is /etc/fai. You
              can also set the environment variable FAI_ETC_DIR.

       -e     Expert mode. Do not add entries to /etc/export, do not restart
              the nfs server, and do not add to /var/log/fai/variables.
