Imaging Software

Does Windows 2003 server (Standard) come with any imaging software?
I used to use Novell Zen works imaging software, but we are moving to AD and I want to know if Windows 2003 can perform the same function as Novell. I want to be able to put a bootable CD in a computer, turn it on and it rebuild the computer, no or little input required, and I don't want to have to go out and purchase additional software to do this if I don't have to.

Look into Norton's Ghost... I use it on a daily basis and its GREAT!  You can do alot more than just image with it also... I love the fact that I can image a BUNCH of machines at one time over the network.  Great tool!

There is no built in imaging software.  There is the SysPrep utility which will prepare a system for imaging (resetting security as to prevent SID/GUID problems when machines with the image are first booted).

You can also look into RIS.
