Centralize your logs, automate everything you can.  Ideally your OS install
procedure should be like "network boot or pop in floppy; enter install
password; check back half an hour later", which should take care of all
configuration and customization.
Yes. Remember too that ordinary users don't need a full Linux installation on their PCs so you can save a lot of network administration time if you use a live Linux CD like Knoppix for your network workstations. Pick a CD that most closely reflects your needs and remaster that to suit your particular requirements if necessary. There are many ways you can implement this.
