To make a long story short: I built a new kernel without the old IDE modules, and now FOG works like a charm - I get about 1 GB/min deployment rate on a 100MBit switch. Here are the steps needed: - download the kernel sources for the current 2.6.25 release from kernel.org and untar them - copy /opt/fog_0.xx/kernel/kitchensink.config to <kernel source dir>/.config - run "make menuconfig" in the kernel source directory (you might need to install the ncurses-dev package first) - go to "Device Drivers" - disable "ATA/ATAPI/MFM/RLL support" - make sure "Serial ATA (prod) and Parallel ATA (experimental) drivers" is enabled - quit the config app, save the settings - run "make". Wait some time until the kernel is done. - copy arch/x86/boot/bzImage to /tftpboot/fog/kernel - you might want to make a backup of the existing kernel first. Now, when you boot the client machines, they should access the harddisk as /dev/sdX instead of /dev/hdX, and the speed should improve dramatically.
