RE: Configuring 100 identical Debian Laptops

Hi, If you have a 2,5" to 3,5" drive adapter you can install one of the 
laptops, and with a desktop computer clone this harddisk to the disks of 
the other 99 laptops. You can use the DOS utility GHOST (works pretty with 
ext2) or with tar if the desktop works in linux. You only need an aditional 
boot disk for the reinstall of the lilo in each laptop and change the 
hostname and ip.

good luck

Subject:	Configuring 100  identical Debian Laptops

Hi all,

I have this lovely task of configuring a large number of identical laptops, 
and I am hoping
that someone knows a way to do the install without running through the 
gazillion dialog boxes
on each one. Basically, the only difference on each laptop is the IP 
address and the Hostname,
all the other configuration info should be the same.   I just do not want 
to do this install one by one...

Has anybody done this?  If so, please enlighten me...
