FAI is a non-interactive system to install, customize and manage
Linux systems and software configurations on computers as well as
virtual machines and chroot environments, from small networks to
large infrastructures and clusters.
This is the client package for FAI. It contains the parts necessary
to run the softupdate functionality on already installed systems, and
is needed for the dirinstall functionality and others on a FAI server.
