You can bring down a sysprep'd image and write a sysprep.inf file
containing the name, network settings, etc. for Windows to read during
See our stuff at http://pie.ucs.ed.ac.uk/pie-1.2/
and in particular
for how we do this,
optionally using udpcast (or http or CDROM) to fetch the actual image.

There is no SID changer for linux.... yet. It so happens that I am
working on one at the moment. I hope it will be ready 'real soon now'.
I'll post to this list once I have a test version ready.

Hi I'm wondering if there is a way to set the
automatically after the broadcast. I heard that the last version of
Ghost do something like that. For the GNU/Linux boxen I can autoset
the hostname from a small script in init.d. I don't know much about
Windows networking. Is the hostname in some file that we can write to
by just mounting the partition? Do we have to mess with the registry?
All the boxes connect to a Samba PDC. Can I copy the machine accounts
and let them share the SID?
