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.
