Thanks to one and all for the words of advice. As many of you may have
   I posted this to both the HPUX Admin list and the Sun-managers list.
Both HP and
  Sun have products that will do what I need, apparently. I'm going to look
into HP's
  IgniteUX and Sun's Jumpstart. Those were the overwhelming favorites in
the many
  replies I recieved......
