One image for many different types of computers

In our organization we currently have many different brands of computers, different processors, different motherboards, etc.  The problem is when we have to reinstall an OS on a computer that we don't have many of, because we don't have an image for it.  The process takes forever with updates, installing programs, etc.  Is there anyway we can have a "one size fits all" image?  We are currently using Ghost Solution Suite.

Thank you for your reply.  That definately looks like a good product and I will research it further.  But for now, is there anyway of getting the same results without purchasing anything new?
I've never had a reason to do this, but could you not just take the drive out of the machine and restore it from a second machine.  After that is done you coulf reinstall the correct licensing info into the target computer and install any necessary drivers.
