Or for a low-tech solution, if the disks are identical, boot rescue mode from CD and dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb Where sda is the whole disk of an already installed system and sdb is a blank disk. If they're HP Proliants or similar you can use their hot-swap mirroring to mirror disks even quicker than dd.
