I assume win xp?
its a simple
install a single computer
then make a live cd from that computer to be sure all drivers are in place
import corporate ghost there on live cd
use sysprep from win xp to prepare computer for cloning
put an image to some share
boot computers from that live cd grab the image
vuala
well there are some mines like
don't use oem windows for cloning otherwise you should type 80 s/n , use volume windows.
If you want to change administrator password via sysprep
leave it blanc in original computer

guess you could ghost-cast them all at once too.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

yeah but there are some mines
limit of concurrent connections
bandwidth of network cards, swithes, size of tables
from my humble expierence faster is boot and to clone from network server share assumes you should boot from live cd and connect to server anyway and while you are packing out 5 computers , 5 ones is ready
of course you can script it but its a little dangerous passwords, server with anonimous access etc computers without supervision
booting and installing themselves again and again... well then you should reboot and change back bios settings takes time
well for some time I had a floppies with ghost and network driver, but when count of that floppies gone over 20 and computers start to came without floppy drives...
