Thanks for all your responses.
I'll eventually take a look at Provisioning.  It looks like I could really use

No Pvs uses streaming technology.  It boots the endpoint via pxe so it can be 
diskless.  You create a Vhd OR use pvs propietary software to create a disk 
image that gets streamed down. Benefit is a single image that can be pushed out 
to hundreds of workstations.
