Is it possible to clone F9 to other computers with similar hardware?

Hi, i'm just wondering if theres a possibility of cloning fedora 9 from one hard drive of a computer to another (like ghost in windows)? The other computers I want to clone (i.e I've got a batch of about 20 I want to convert to fedora 9) have similar hardware profiles to the one that is currently running fedora 9.

As a test, I tried placing the hard drive into the machine with the similar profile only to find it wants me to log on with my root password in order to go through the command prompts at the root level. From there, once i logged on all i got was a screen similar to this (not exactly certain about the prompt but looks similar) - [local.host]#

Can anyone suggest ways in which i may be able to go about cloning onto the hard drives of each computer?

Why are you asking the same darn question? dd is your answer in your other thread.
Ok dd, may look messy.
Since you are going to run this same thing 20 times. Goggle for "Fedora kickstart"

That kickstart is a timesaver.

Thanks! Kickstart looks like the best option I've got.

Sorry for posting the same thread twice. I've found through using some forums in the past that it sometimes helps to post a diverse question into the relevant sections as it gives the question better exposure to different opinions depending on the section.
