Disaster Recovery

I'm trying to come up with some sort of program to enter all of our disaster recovery information into. I'm not overly concerned with the hardware aspect but I need to have docmented every single aspect of the configuration of each server on our network. Basically if a machine dies, I need to be able to rebuild it to the exact same specifications as it was before it died. Does anyone have any ideas other than using a word processor to write out the documentation. I should mention that I would like it to be easily updateable by all members of our IT department any time even the smallest changes are made.

That's not a bad program but not quite what I'm looking for. I'm hoping to find something that doesn't involve uploading and download documents to update the information.

Well, could you just save a copy of all the relevant configuration files to a CD or something like that? -- J.W.

That would work also. The thing is that we have not yet started the documentation. I was hoping to find some kind of web interface that would store the data in a mysql database that we could easily modify as the configuration of a system changes.
