How to Ghost many computers

We have purchased 27 new machines for our office.  All the machines are the same and will be be loaded with basicaly the same software.  I am wondering if i can use a copy of ghost to clone the first machine I setup and image that clone to the other 26 machines.  Will that work do do i need to use a different Ghost software?  Right now i just have Ghost 10.0.  I realize that it will name each machine the same but i can change that at a later date.

Very clear guide on how to do this once setup works a treat

We usually image 4 machines at a time using Symantec Ghost Cast Server. You will need to setup your base computer just the way you want it, then after everything is perfectly set just the way you want it.  Run sysprep on the machine tick the check box for mini setup.  the computer will power down.  THEN use the boot cd you can create through symantec ghost suite 2.0 that has the NDIS2 drivers for your specific NIC and you can create a ghost image to be put somehwere on your network.  Then you go to your server computer tell ghost you want to restore an image, tell it how many you are deploying to, then go to each computer load up the same disc you used to create the image when you startup the computer and give it the session name and when the last one is entered the image download will start.
