Automated installation with the Cobbler provisioning tool

Conclusion

Cobbler is a great enterprise-capable tool that removes a lot of the traditional headaches associated with setting up a provisioning system. This makes it great not just for the users at large data centers and clusters, but also for a LUG that wants to set up a network install server for an installfest.
