The two that I've used with success are udpcast and g4u (ghost4unix)



I find it easier to use udpcast when I want to copy a master machine to others via the network right then and there, although it's definitely possible to tell one of the receiver machines to take what it receives and write it to an image file rather than the hard disk.

g4u has more of the expectation that you might want to be sending your data stream to an image file on a server, but it has other options as well.

Good luck.
