I have been using cloning in a small computer lab this year without
difficulty. I use ghost (but not ghost walker) to make a ideal image. Its
of a machine with a ip and names that are not in normal use. Each machine
is 'ghosted', then booted and ip and name changed to correct value. As long
as you ensure only one machine is comming up with the 'non-used' ip and
name at a time, no problems.

Was used for initial setup and replacement of image a couple of times when
we had some hardware problems. The machines appear to function normally,
browsing and passwd changing works fine, samba is quite happy.
