Most interesting, do tell more (please).

I am about to embark upon setting up another Debian/Ubuntu based
cluster and haven't looked back at the "competition" in a while from
my FAI + cfengine2 based management.

Does puppet do unattended install (via PXE or some other method) now
or is it still just a management doverlackie? Meaning use a pre-seeded
Ubuntu/Debian install disk + puppet.

This is a good thing, we have a horse with a mouth.
