Farhan, thanks to Unix Text-File(TM) Technology, you don't need to use Ghost. Plain old cp will suffice. Only machine specific stuff in /etc will need to be changed (/etc/sysconfig/* in case of Redhat like distros). If you need to keep a consistent structure across the board, you might want to mount /usr over NFS too.

Never used Ghost myself.
