If you have hard-disk space to spare on each machine:

Consider installing a custom linux distro and do an X -broadcast, as I mentioned.  If you have an
entire class booting linux, it may save time. (I haven't tried it, but I plan to eventually as I
think we're in the same boat)  

Then use g4u (Ghost for Unix) and ghost it, it'll ghost everything including the MBR, from what I
know.  That should fix about all the machines for dual boot.

Or you can use a .com etherboot image.  There was a short tutorial on linux.com a few years ago on
who to use loadlin from editing the windows command.com and autoexec.bat as mentioned before.

Best of luck!!
