Ignite tools Redhat deployment for Itanium servers?

I need to deploy Redhat on multiple servers on a network. Are there any tools that I can purchase to assist this? I am looking for tools like the HP-UX Ignite product.

Thanks in advance

Ignite has not been ported to Linux. It would really be a total re-write.

Some ideas:
http://www.mondorescue.org/

My servers have Intel cards. Intel makes it childs play to create a boot disk or cd for their cards that boots and network enables you.

Under this scheme you can boot, connect to a network server and save a system image of the entire hard disk for replication.

Alas, you scenario does not perfectly fit into any of the circumstances. It its an HP Itanium Server I doubt mondorescue is going to work.

Seems HP-UX is worth paying for if you ask me, which you didn't. Thats because with HP-UX IPF you get Ignite for free.

You could use mkCDrec (http://mkcdrec.org/) to replicate Linux system on IA64 platform.
It is kind of mondorescue, but has been ported to Linux/ia64 and Linux_x64

And if you speak about installation, RH kickstart works well for mass installation!
