If this are Desktops, then Disk Copy should work (in theory) considering
they are exactly identical configurations.
You'll need something like following command :

dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdb bs=1024k

where if= your "source" disk, and of= your "target" disk
You will need to physically connect the HDD to the running machine.

Doing this for 100 machines will be time consuming (Does norton ghost work
over network ?)
