	Two programs you should have a look at. FAI and replicator.
Search for them on freshmeat.

	The other option is if they're going to be exactly the same.
ie exact same hardware exact same install.
Just create a disk image of one of them and then create a boot disk that
nfsmounts over a networks and dd's the image to the disk.
