    TFTP Open Timeout when imaging more than one client

    Help!

    I've installed Fog on Ubuntu 9.10 on probably a 5-year old laptop, initially just for testing, but now we have 150 netbooks to set up, it's going to be used until at least next week, when hopefully Fog 0.29 will be released, and I can stick it on a slightly more powerful Ubuntu 10.04 box.

    Anyway, everything seems to work fine - Fog will image one PC at a time with no issues at all (and really fast!), but when trying to network boot from a second client, I get the following error:

    PXE=E32 TFTP Open Timeout
    Filesize=0 Bufsize=537600
    TFTP...

    It will then just sit there until you put it out of its misery and reboot. When the first client has finished imaging, the second will then go without a hitch.

    Any ideas? Part of me hopes it's just the sorry state of the Fog server I'm using, and that come Fog 0.29 everything will just work swimmingly, but if anyone's got any ideas they'd be very much appreciated. Also, I'm kind of a Linux newbie, so go slowly

    Issue found - IP conflict. d'oh!

    All seems to be going swimmingly now, even with the ancient hardware!
