installation build and test process question - warning, it is dumb.



You guys have offered some great advice, so I am going to ask a dumb sort of question. I have a machine with all the peripherals - CD, DVD, Frewire, SATA, EIDE, SCSI, USB ports, and multiple ethers. I use this as a build and test machine - configuring a drive to be installed in another box. It is not possible to add more than a minimal drive to the target machines.

When I build a drive, configure the apps, test it, and then install it in the intended box, I have to do lots of manual clean up, ethernet device names making them match mac addresses in the configs, and so on. I am careful about system names, ip addresses,
and all that for the application installs.

Is there an easier way to do this? I have tried a few alternatives but they still require post install clean up. yeah, I am kind of manually going through all this,
not quie brute force but close.

thanks for any ideas
bob
