 Yes. A nice debian distribution, with CFengine built in, with 
 the "roles" of all the different types of machines, preprogramed,
 so that you can walk up to a machine, boot it, and then poof it is
 running it's role.

 We are working on it, using User Mode Linux as a way to blow out
 the test networks. We are using debian. It sure would be nice if 
 cfengine were part of debian a bit tighter. 

 I think we are on the same page.

 %      Where's that?  

 Just got it so it is empty, but it is mln.sourceforge.net

 A side part of this project will be a cfengine based rule set
 aiming in the same direction that Nate is talking about.
