"Personally, I think it's unrealistic to do all the testing and<br>installation in one afternoon. It would be nice to install a few<br>different distros, and then have the users test them and give us<br>feedback - we could then come back and configure the one that seems to
<br>fit best a week later or so. What do people think of that idea?"<br><br>If they knew exactly what they needed and could communicate that clearly, I would disagree that one day is unrealistic (with the right resources,
e.g. a KVM switch and several copies of installation discs, and a clear plan I could do that many in a single day all by myself). However, since neither of those seem to be the case, I agree that one day may not be realistic (especially if we're talking about multiple distros).

It would also be necessary to have a valid copy of Ghost (nobody has mentioned so far that they do). I've never had much luck with Ghost + Linux anyway.
