The whole thing is set up for bare metal recoveries. I'm not thinking of Mondo or mkCDrec. Perhaps I dreamt it? :-) I've been digging through the list archives for a while, but can't seem to find the link, so, I thought I'd just ask if anyone knows where I might find this software, or if it even exists? Thanks!

I swear by systemimager ( for my linux clustering 
projects. It handles both the 'install from bare metal' as well as doing 
incremental updates to running systems via methods that don't tie you 
down to one particular app packaging mechanism.

I've used it on multiple Dell cluster deployments without problems.
