Alright, i'm sorry if i have placed this in the wrong section, i wasn't sure where it would fit best into.

Basically i just wanted to get some thoughts and suggestions on how some people might do this...

Here's the basics of it, we have approximately 500 single board computers that we need to have exactly the same thing on. What i was thinking of doing was hooking them all up onto the network so that we could just use norton ghost on each one, but then again they are all single board computers and i would have to figure out some way to hook up a floppy drive or cd rom drive to each one to load norton ghost. They are all inclusive single board computers meaning it has the single board computer, hard drive, and power supply all in one small box.

I just wanted to see if anybody had any other ideas about how i might go about doing this, or any suggestions on how i might do it more efficiently with norton ghost...

Thanks for your help guys.

Also -- hard drives come loaded already with lunix from the manufacturer in case that matters.

(They do have USB ports so i was thinking about just doing a boot from usb flash drive)
There's no place like, i'm tired of being at

I don't use Norton, but I don't think it'll work with Linux. Not sure about Acronis either. There is Ghost for Linux

You can install this stuff over the network, but that's way, way beyond my abilities (XP was designed with this in mind). Here's a link that may help you get started: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechn...oy/default.mspx
