    N.B. Fog 0.33 is currently beta,this will allow you to test 0.33 alongside your existing 0.32 installation.

    On your 0.32 installation.

    Via the “other information” -> “PXE Boot Menu screen” -> “Advance Configurations” Add the following to your custom text, where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of your new 0.33 server.

    LABEL FOG 0.33 Beta

    MENU LABEL DEV menu

    Don’t forget to suppy a Master password before saving pressing “Save PXE Menu”

    copy the ipxe.krn file from /tftpboot on the 0.33 server to the same location on the 0.32 server.

    On the 0.33 server.
