Assuming you have the XP variant - I use Clonezilla with DRBL, the A1 
will boot using PXE just fine so no need for external USB CD drives etc. 
I built the first one as needed, copied it to the DRBL server, then 
imaged the rest (6 in my case) from that. DRBL and Clonezilla can 
multicast, so in theory you could do all your 45 at once!

They have a hidden WinXP restore partition, which I have left in place.
