The fastest way is to set up one board the way you want it, then use something line UDPCast ( to replicate the image amongst the remaining boards. Connect as many as you can to a single switch. Because you're multicasting, all boards will get the image simultaneously. I've not done 500 with this method, but I've done 50.

The important thing is to have this switch isolated from the normal LAN.

If you run a multicast on a network that is in production, you can seriously impact the network traffic for all other tasks.

BTW:- Is there a particular reason that you want to deploy RHEL3? RHEL5 is the latest release, not sure that RHEL3 is still supported by Red Hat..
