Graphical Menu Configruation Advanced
It's very easy to edit the graphical pxe menu of the FOG server. You can change everything from the background color Link title to the font color / size, and even add additional pieces of software you can boot from.
Modify your default file from your server
You can also edit and modify the default menu file directly on your FOG server. This file is located in the /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg folder.
- Note that this file, along with your customized edits, will be overwritten by FOG if the PXE boot menu is updated through the web interface.
Open the default file in your favorite text editor. You are going to want to modify the file to adjust the menu color title and the default font color. Please note that font color and menu color are controlled similar to what you would see in HTML based coding.

By default #ffffffff = white
By default #00000000 = black
If you feel inclined, you can also change what is displayed at the top of the menu as well. Even though FOG is registered under GPL 3, I am going to suggest that you include some credit for Chuck Syperski / etc.
