Default Three Identical systems - short cut to setting up thedrives?

How about installing one, and using the anaconda-ks that is generated to
install the other two?

That was my first plan. But that just saves the time going through the
install selection and getting the same stuff installed.

I would still have to do the yum update (though there was the post
about how to include the update repo in a kickstart install. Then I
have the powerk8 kernel patch to install (these are old systems with
new drives), followed by a number of config file changes (setting up
IPtables, changing SSHD, configing VNC, etc). All that is a lot to
work out for a kickstart install.

The pointer of running dd fromLinux Rescue sounded good. But
Clonezilla calls for some real investigation.

have you tried using Norton Ghost? I've used this many times and works
nicely replicating complete systems. Upon boot though, unless the
hardware/chipsets are identical as well, you'll go through some minor
gyrations while kudzu removes and adds drivers for the systems.


Ignorance, like Reality, is a matter of perspective.
