They sound similiar.

Google reveals that what I was thinking of was Jumpstart, which is the
solaris approach to all this.

I think the FAI stuff will work with remote boot roms on the network
cards if you want to do that, too.

I don't have any info but I think FAI is fairly immature.

I just prefer a small system which makes it easy to install what you
want rather than a big one where you have to remove stuff.

I dunno.
