Default deploying identical servers

Is there a tool to "ghost" a server? I want to deploy multiple identical servers & it will take forever by the time all of the updates are installed.

Symantec Ghost should work. Unless when you put ghost in quotes that you want something other than ghost to do it :/

Ghost is ideal. If not, you can put extra hard drives into the parent machine and boot a live Linux distro. Using that, you can clone HDs if they are identical. (dd will do it, but is a bit slow.)
