fai-bootcd almost does this (http://holbytla.org/fai/). At the moment you can
define an FAI class description to replicate any host, fai-bootcd puts this onto
a bootable CD for non-interactive installs without network. Performing an FAI
install into a chroot and building a live CD out this filesystem is next on my
list. I've just requested sponsorship for fai-bootcd on debian-mentors... ;-)
