A basic how-to for using System Image Utility
Authored by: Asmus Vierck on Dec 24, '08 05:27:37PM

If you were just going to create a NetBoot / NetInstall set, you can leave out the steps 4-10 (where the .dmg is created) and just select the mounted Mac-HD in the System Image Utility. This will save you about 1-2 hours or so.
On a sidenote, I strongly recommend to read the book "Mac OS X 10.5 Deployment v10.5" from Peachpit, as it covers the whole Deployment-through-NetBoot setup in good detail. After reading this, I was able to set up our server to push the image on ~ 8 Macs per hour.
