    /etc/resolv.conf should contain the IP of the DNS Servers on your network
    nameserver 192.168.8.1
    nameserver 192.168.8.2

    it was set to dhcp, but i changed it by right clicking on the wired network connection by the clock, choosing edit connections > auto eth0 > edit > ipv4 > then manually setting it, applying then closing the window, however i have just gone to double check and its rest back to dhcp?

    You need to specifiy the TFTP server ip adress and boot file -

    1. Open DHCP configuration Start > Administrative Tools > DHCP.
    2. Then expand your server, expand the applicable scope (often only one is there)
    3. right click on Scope Options
    4. click Configure Options
    5. tick 066 and enter the IP Address of the FOG server
    6. tick 067 and enter pxelinux.0 (thats a zero).
    7. Make sure that 060 is unticked.

    ^^ make sure youve done that

    and make sure that on the fog machine the firewall (System -> Administration -> Firewall) is off and SELinux is off (System -> Administration -> SELinux Management).

    also you will need to disable iptables and ip6tables in System -> Administration -> Services

    yep all that was done, turns out that WDS was running (but not in use) and it was interfearing with the fog side of things.

    all sorted now, just getting to grips with it cheers

    Do you have to manually add all the devices by mac address or can you import them from a database? we run spice works here so we have them all in a database already, that possible?

    Becuase fog uses NFS protocol, you will have to setup up your XP box to setup an NFS share, so fog can mount to your XP box.

    You can import your hosts in host management and then click on upload hosts.
