Yes, we succesfully ignited a whole lab with a pseudo-custom 10.20
installation. We did the whole thing as a tar ignition.

Yes, we found it to be a pain in the ass, too. It's been a while since I
didit, but when we issued the command to make the tar image of the system
we wanted to copy, we found that there are about 20 files that are omitted
from the image. These files are presumably created by ignite during the
install, but that's not always what you want. You may have to read up on
doing the post-install scripts. Write a script to go patch up your passwd
stuff. I don't remember exactly how we did the post-install stuff. I know
the documentation is slightly confusing and it took a few tries to get it
But when you're all done it's nice to schedule all the bootsys commands
as "at" jobs on the old 9.x system and come in the next morning to freshly
upgraded systems. :)
