Assistance with Ghost Solution Suite

I am new to ghost solution suite and was hoping some of you could help me.  I am trying to figure the best way to use the program.  I have about 120 machines that I need to get up and running all identical.  I want to setup one and image it them use GSS to image all the others.  I have easily created a boot disk and created an image, but I started thinking.  When I push that image to all the others I am going to have to do extra work to deal with computer names.

How can I use GSS to create an image and push it to all the others with different computer names but still added to the domain.  I have been reading and saw stuff about Ghostcast server and sysprep.  I just do not know how to use those tools.  Please let me know if you can help

Once again I have never used this product and all the machines are brand new with windows 7

Much appreciated and thanks in advance.

You must use ghostwalker to rename the machine and create a new SID

After cloning process run the network boot disk again, but instead of running ghost, run ghstwalk.exe and step through the process to rename the machine and generate a new SID.

the only thing I would say is that if you are making copies of the network boot disk you are going to want to change the computer name in the system.ini in the NET folder. otherwise it will tell you that there is already a computer with that name on the network.
