“Why would I want to do that?
Let’s look at a few scenarios:
you are a sysadmin and you need to build twenty web servers, all almost exactly the same

you have many machines at remote sites which might fail. You want to leave a CD at each site that the local staff can boot from which will automatically rebuild the machine to a known state so that you can then remotely restore the backed-up data and get it running: all without having to travel half across the country to do it.”

It’s a great (and welcomed) find! Take a look at the tool here: http://www.instalinux.com/
