Does anyone have an example of bootstrapping a new cfengine install. The problem I have is that after I install berkeleydb and cfengine, I have to run cfkey and then ssh this key to a master host. Problem is, I use cfengine for all software installs so I don't have cfengine on new hosts. I'm sure someone has solved this problem. It appears that cfengine has some features to account for the chicken and egg problem, but I thought I ask to see if someone has already thought of a clever solution.

This may not be appropriate to your case but, for one of my clients, I built a Redhat kickstart based rollout system that, as part of the installation, installed cfengine and hooked the server up to the master repository.
