RE: [seul-edu] "Ghosting" Linux systems

I don't know if you're implying that Ghost *can't* do this, but the latest
versions will.

If you are using Red Hat Linux, check out the Kickstart feature (add some
post-install shell scripts and stir).  You may have to learn how to build
RPM packages to make optimal use of this program.

Subject: [seul-edu] "Ghosting" Linux systems

Quite some time ago someone asked about how to easily duplicate
Linux installations in school labs, as I recall.  I just came across


From their website: Replicator is a set of scripts to automate the
duplication of a model computer running Debian/GNU Linux, with some
provisions to take into account differences in hardware (like HD
size, video card) and in software configuration (partitioning).
