You could try an approach which I used when having to install 10 Dell
Poweredges with very little time.
I set one machine up VERY well, made sure all of the uses were setup etc.
Then took the SCSI drives out of the other machines in turn, then DD'ed the
contents of the original disk over the top of the new ones.
All that remained was to change the hostname and IP info on boot up - shazam
- 10 machines for the time of 2.
Just a thought - only works with VERY similar/identical hardware.
