servers can serve files with a host pre or postfix instead of the real
file or programms fall back to such files. You would use something
like /etc/fstab%host% then.

Or build seperate directories with links to a common dir except for
host specific files.

With a pool of identical machines there is very little thats host
dependent. Come to think of it with dhcp you can configure the network
and whats then left thats host specific?
