How to Install Fedora on 150+ machines

Hi List;

Anyone have any ideas on how I could automate the install of Fedora on 150+
computers with various specs (i.e. a variety of models, sound cards, video
cards, hard drive sizes, etc)

Are you familiar with Kickstart?
I would recommend to use Kickstart Install via local NFS Server.

Doesn't a tipical unix (Linux) factory use X-Boxs for terminal display of their Server Account?

You need about 10 or 15 big VNC type servers.

But if you insist on madness, use the PXE, proxy ftp, and a lot of disk space.

As I understand it, one can boot, install, or install and check for new install, or install and check for updates. But that's over my head.

You'll need 3 or 4 boxes just to get started.
Time to Google and read.
