Cloning school Macs

Thanks, Dave,
I really want to start from scratch on these machines (in use in classrooms for 4 years), so if I were setting each one up individually I'd probably start with erasing the hard drives. I want to preserve serial numbers, MAC addresses, and anything else that's machine-specific and not user-defined. The network uses dynamic IP addresses. I know that I'll need to go through and rename the machines and do a little tweaking of accounts, but I'd like to automate as much as is feasible. I'm afraid that I know just enough to be dangerous about this, and I don't want to mess things up or make more work for myself!
