Manually?  I'd just like to point out that for 27 machines, setting up a fai 
server is definitely worth the effort!  Painless re-installs, and moving 
our fai setup from sarge to etch (including LDAP auth, NFS homes and some 
local specialties) cost me less than 2 days.

(Of course, if you really upgraded these machines manually, the RMs and many 
others are grateful for the testing :-)
