You can try Quattor, the automatic installation and configuration tool used at 
CERN computing centre (see http://www.quattor.org). Quattor includes an 
Automatic Installation Infrastructure (AII), based on DHCP, PXELinux and 
Kickstart. But AII is a general framework that can include, in the future, 
other installations tools and UNIX/Linux flavors.
