You can try Quattor, the automatic installation and configuration tool used at
CERN computing centre (see http://www.quattor.org). Quattor includes an
Automatic Installation Infrastructure (AII), based on DHCP, PXELinux and
Kickstart. But AII is a general framework that can include, in the future,
other installations tools and UNIX/Linux flavors.
