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

    It assumes an existing working 0.32 installation, and also a working 0.33 install.

    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
    kernel ipxe.krn dhcp && chain [url]http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/fog/service/ipxe/boot.php?mac=${net0/mac}[/url]
    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.

    [B]Disable[/B] the dhcp service on the 0.33 server, you will need to consult the O/S documentation for details on how to do that.
