This tutorial will show how to install FOG, a free computer imaging solution on Fedora 8. FOG is an open source replacement for products like Ghost or Zenworks Imaging. FOG can be used to image Windows XP and Vista machines that have a single partition on them. FOG does not use boot disks, instead everything is done via PXE and DHCP. The management of FOG is all done via a web portal. FOG also includes things like memtest, disk wiping, low-level disk checking and file recovery. FOG also includes a service that will do things like change the computer’s hostname after imaging, etc. For more information please see the FOG website at http://freeghost.sf.net

Before you begin, you will need at least two computers, one that will act as the FOG server and a second, which will at as our client. Please understand that this tutorial will have you destroy all data on the hard disks of both computers.
