Make rpm your bitch. I'd set up my own rpmfind.net server in house with rpm2html, rpm all corporate software packages and just go old school on it. If I couldn't do kickstart I'd create custom iso's to slam it home no questions asked unattended.

There's no problem with 1000 PC's on the network being identical?

No, because they're not identical at all. For example, all the NIC should have different MAC addresses, which allows you to setup things like DHCP for different IP addresses in each PC.

I would have suggested setting up a yum (fc, soon to be redhat) up2date (redhat) repository for all custom built RPM's.
