Computer Lab

By ltrumpower ·
I work for Public School District, which has acquired 70 new imac's, to set up for a Computer Lab, and a Reading Lab Class. Currently, I am installing most of the applications through the server onto each computer. Reading Lab will have Apple Network Assistant 3.2 installed, would using this be any easier than installing through the server? Isn't there a way to set up one computer and duplicate this to the rest?

I would use imaging software like Norton Ghost or Power Quest Drive Image. Setup one computer the way you want it and upload the image onto the server. Then just boot from a bootable (with network) diskette or CD, and download the image off the server onto the MAC. The more images running the slower the download will take. In order to save bandwith, you may want to create bootable CD with the image on the CD and load the MAC from the CD.

You can also use this *free* reverse
distribution utility for the Mac, RevRdist.
Link here for more details. While I haven't
personally used this program, I'm told it's
a good solution.
