Systemimager. It also supports making configuration changes directly to the image (via chroot), overriding parts of the image on each client, skipping over specific parts of the directory tree, transfer via ssh (instead of rsync in the clear), and customizations on a client-by-client basis. I admin about 15 workstations and 3 servers, and this program is worth its byte-count in gold (I would say weight, but bytes don't weigh anything :-) It makes duplicating the workstation installs a piece of cake, and makes server backups very easy, and restoration very easy when something goes wrong. -Roberto
