HOWTO duplicate RHEL server


I'm the IT manager at a mid-sized community college, and want to setup three machines with RHEL 3. I have one machine setup exactly how I want it and want to know if there is a way to replicate this configuration to the other two machines?

The reason I want to do this is that I an planning to run all my basic network services on these boxes (web, dns, dhcp, mail, etc) with each service running on at least two machines, so when a box goes down we don't go down with it.

Any ideas?

Have you used either of these methods? Any more details or references?

Symantec should give you all the documentation you need if you decide to use Ghost. If it's not been deleted, you can look in /root on the prototype box and you'll see /root/anaconda-ks.cfg file after the install is complete. You can copy that to a boot floppy. Run: linux kickstart at the prompt and that should do it for you. At any rate, you'll really want to take a look at this page: http://sial.org/howto/kickstart/

This should help you out.
