    What about the inevitable move to vista/windows 7? From what I understand sms2003 won't be capable of deploying these os's.

    It downloads new software from the internet so it will need a live internet connection and you may need to set the proxy address if you have one. You can do that in one of the menus at the top.

    It looks like the version of Ubuntu you are using is missing required packages - MySQL and Apache. These are almost certainly installed as standard as part of the server version.

    If I was you I'd start again with Ubuntu Server.

    Don't worry about being a server edition, it doesn't mean it will take over your DHCP, DNS, LDAP or whatever else you have your Windows servers doing. All it means is that it includes various server technologies that you can use IF YOU WANT TO.

    Two of these technologies will be a Web Server - Apache and a Database Server - MySQL - that are required by FOG.

    Or at least that's what your screenshot is suggesting to me.

    You should be able to install on Ubuntu Desktop, in fact the FOG install guide uses the desktop edition.

    Can't exactly remember but perhaps this is downloaded and installed during the FOG install? As you have no internet connection perhaps it failed?

    It can definitely do Vista with the OSD update so not sure what the status of 7 is though...

    Will only move when we absolutely have to as I read far too many threads about how bad SCCM is with bare metal installs and unknown clients that it's not exactly selling itself to me at the moment

    Had it on test twice and both times SMS felt more intuitive and quicker to get working

    You are going to need an internet connection, as well as an entered proxy if your behind one.

    Also, a few FOG installs i have done, failed first time, simply running sudo ./installfog.sh again sorted this out.

    I'm sure I just read a question about password behaviour on the pxe boot menu? Now its gone.

    Anyway to answer the question a quote from FOG forum:

    This is intentional, we disabled any feature on the boot menu that could be destructive to the client computer. You must regenerate the pxe menu via -> other information -> pxe boot menu in order to get into those options.
