I think it would be helpful, if for no other reason than to compare/contrast the complexity of this undertaking.

I'm not a huge fan of Red Hat but for this purpose I recommended it because:
1) Easy to install en masse (via kickstart)
2) Easier for a kid to find help solving issues (even people who don't *like* Red Hat often have enough experience with it to help solve a problem).

If this Debian bulk installer is easier than kickstart, at least one of the reasons for RH will be shot down.
