I would start with FAI if I would be doing 1 installs a week. Anything
below that would need some carefull thought, simply because it is a lot
of work to set it up and to maintain your profiles that you create. I am
not sure if that is what you want.

Now, by "serving" I'm a bit lost. Apache is an webserver, and I'm not
sure where you want to go with "serving" debian or other distibutions
with apache.
What do you want to exactly?
