    I have installed fog .30 on a Ubuntu 10.04 and was wondering what other preparations I need to take to get PXE boot to work. I have a dhcp server and have made the appropriate changes to that. Is there anything else I need?

    It should work. I would suggest upgrading to 0.32 before you put too much work into it.

    Could a cisco router or any router for that matter be denying my magic packet. I cannot seem to get the computers to find fog upon a pxe boot.

    First understand that pxe and magic packets are 2 separate things. But yes routers will disrupt the flow of these packets. These type of packets need to be on the same network, and by definition routers separate networks. For instance, if your fog server is on a 10.1.1.2 ip and the netmask is 255.255.0.0, then anything within the 10.1.x.x range would find it, however if you have a router in there so your clients are on the 10.2.x.x network then you will need to add a rule to make 10.1.1.2 able to be seen (if this is possible, its been years since I last configured an actual router, sure I setup some wireless routers, but that just isn't the same as a cisco 2800 now is it? ;) ) Typically you want to be on the same switch.

    From what I read this is as easy as running the deployment package for .32. Is it as easy to uninstall in case it doesn't work after the upgrade?

    Never uninstall something because it didnt work instantly, make it work.

    That being sad, it is very easy and automatic to upgrade to 0.32.
