Use rdist. It's a tool to syncronise filesystems of different systems.
Updating only one master system and setting up a cron job to update the
other systems is quite easy. You can specify files (and groups of files)
that should not get updated (e.g. network initialization and ip address)
It works even over the secure ssh.
