RE: [seul-edu] Automated network installation

The thing about System Imager that struck me was that it can be used to
*maintain* the machines that you've imaged.  That is, make changes to one
machine and that night all the changes get pushed out (or sucked down) to
the farm.

I'm gearing up to do this in a commercial environment.  I can see many areas
where this may be useful in a K-12 environment.  If somehow someone manages
to compromise a machine, just patch the master node and push a fresh image
down to all machines with the fix.

Thanks, Chris.  You can't have too many choices, I always say.
