I almost have sms configured the way I need it. My goal is to install the finished configuration at several pueblos.

Is the best way to do this by creating a live cd or the text installer? Your advice is greatly appreciated.

thanks

If I understand correct you want to install SMS on several machines...
At first you can try creating an image of disk and try clone the other machines, 99% it will work and it will be faster than everything else...
Text installer takes a while to install, specially on old machines, so the best way is to create copies of your SMS and install parallel on machines..

When you say try to create copy of image, is there a program or script that does that?

If you could point me to a url would appreciate it.

thanks

You can use, Ghost for Linux here
I used in the past Norton Ghost and Acronis, never tried Ghost for Linux but it's a clone of Norton Ghost so you will have no problem.

I am using the g4l iso. I chose the cloning option. Takes along time!

Would you mind telling me, how you use g4l? Just the scripts, or iso as well. When I run the scripts it gives an error message, that's why I use iso.
