Question Cloning Windows XPs


I want to clone a windows xp to 18 other PCs in my network just using my network. I don't want to use any external storage/device to set-up the cloning process on each PC because each PC has no CD/DVD-ROM or floppy.

I found 2 cloning software that will do job, if i not mistaken, CloneZilla and Partimage. My question is which of the two is the best for my case?

from the clonezilla faq

Multicast is supported in Clonezilla SE, which is suitable for massively clone. You can also remotely use it to save or restore a bunch of computers if PXE and Wake-on-LAN are supported in your clients.

Thanks for the reply repo.

I'll give it a try the CloneZilla. Those 18 PCs i think they have a wake-on-lan. btw, do you know where can i get tutorial or i a guide that will help me set-up CloneZilla SE?
