We run Debian on our clusters, so you're definitely not the only  
person using a Debian-based distro for your cluster.

Debian does have a kickstart-like deployment mechanism, debconf  
preseeding, but it's fiendish to debug.  I use FAI instead (Fully  
Automated Install) but that's broken with recent Ubuntu releases,
