Alright, so i've got about 500 single board computers (SBC, hard drive, power supply all in one small box) that i need to clone off one that i have already configured. Now the problem i face is how to do this considering that the hard drive is a laptop hard drive, so i would have to actually make the ghost file while on the fedora box and then somehow boot onto a cdrom or usb flash drive to put it on the other boxes.


Any suggestions or hints would be greatly appreciated!


I posted a somewhat similar post as this; however, this one is more linux based as my other one was more software (norton ghost) based. Thanks for the help!

I was planning on doing about 10-20 at a time but yes, i can have them all tied together on the network without a problem...
