Angry network installation to laptop: Does anyone use FAI ?

I have a laptop to install linux too, via the network card. I've tried useing fai to do it, but I can't get past the first part of the setup, it's just too confusing to me, I don't even know how to do most of the stuff, but I want to get something on the thing so it's not a 300 dollar door stopper.
