In Aviad's article "What Is Network Booting (PXE) and How Can You Use It?", can you please answer if these are tabs between each of these?...

MENU BACKGROUND fog/bg.png
menu color screen 37;40 #80ffffff #00000000 std

I've built a working vm using dhcp proxy with goal in mind of making it portable and able to work in almost any environment. I want to expand it's capabilities (images) but I have to tweak the article's paths from /tftpboot -> /tftpboot/ltsp/i386. As I am copying and pasting the article's commands, I want to make sure I am properly formatting the .cfg files.

Great site by the way. Thanks!

It depends on where the fog folder is located. If it is /tftpboot/fog/ you are fine.

Thanks for the reply but I wasn't asking where to store my files, I was asking about whether if mattered if there was tabs or spaces between these fields:

menu color screen 37;40 #80ffffff #00000000 std

It doesn't seem to be too critical because I ended up tabbing everything and it worked fine:

menu color screen[TAB]37;40[TAB]#80ffffff[TAB]#00000000[TAB]std

However, I don't think this is proper and would like to be corrected on how this should really be keyed.
