You can try FAI (Fully Automatic Installation) or, as the other option,
System Imager. I tried both... Did not succeed with FAI (more complex,
but also more powerful than System Imager) but succeeded with System
Imager. It is fairly simple for installation. Works over floppy, CD, or
PXE... I recommend PXE. :)
Google provides links for these tools.
