Could this be done with different disk geometries but where say the first
physical partition is always the same size in 512 byte sectors?

OK, but NTFS is a must, and experimental NTFS write support won't recover

Could this be automated somehow? Computer names could be generated quite
simply from the IP address here, and I would love to deploy the same NT
after some application installations as well (where updating the computer
name on every WS might result in some ugly work -- can renaming a WS be
done at all after having joined the domain?).
