Or just a simple client/daemon suite that you can write yourself? Client just broadcasts on its subnet that its ready to be installed to.

daemon snaps this up and tells the admin "The computer at IP XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX says its ready to be installed to."

Can't be any more simple than that.

But of course, someone should think of security options aswell.
Also, a feature I'd like to see is somewhat like Norton Ghost. Let's say you have a installer server that all the clients connect to, recieve their config from, load it then start installing when the server says it's ok to go. The admin would see all the clients installing from his browser etc..

Anyone like this idea?

Me :) All of it :)

Guys, look at rconfig(8), such functionality is already implemented in DragonFly and extending on it should not be more than a day's work.
