installing -- cdrom, network install, rsync
updating -- create your-local*.rpm and each node downloads new
"required" updates that has been tested on other "test clusters"
- or rsync or *.tgz or ??
- and a package/scripting status files to say which

there is .. lots of easy ways ...
- "easy" is all relative to the user's ideas ??
personally, i don't like debians installer or *.deb packages
or any other *.rpm packages
but use the same equivalent "my-apt-get.pl *.tgz"
and i am happy as a clam
