G.W. Cantello:
Try looking into Web Flash.
You do one install and patch it. Then, make an archive / image of it.
(Flash Archive)
This archive can be used with jumpstart to "Flash" in the OS over the
network. It can be "very" fast. Say, 20 minutes for 100Mbit network 
using Sun Blade 100s. I notice the Ultra 5s we have loading slower.

Original message:
I am installing Netra X1 machines with an Installserver (SunBlade
The clients have to be patched with 8_Recommended, which takes 2 hours

Thanks again
