additionally, debian has a package called "fai" which is the debian
equivalant of a network kickstart/jumpstart.  it's a bit of a hassle
to set it up, but once you do, you can bootstrap a fully configured
system exactly how you want it in like 10-15 minutes--completely
hands-free.  might make the installfest go a little more smoothly.
the cs department at swarthmore just used it to convert their main
lab over to debian, i could probably get their notes if you think
it'd be helpful...
