Whoah! :) Wow, Sherrod, that sounds like a pretty Herculean task! Kudos for making the attempt! :)

I think I will just burn a DVD, then... provided I can find/get/make a 32 bit compatible version! :o

As for "nuking" the HD's... what is on them is irrelevant, since these are experimental machines, so that's not a problem. :) I'll nuke 'em again and again if I have to! ;) (We'll teach those hatches!!)

Here's a "hmmmm...." question:
Since 3 of these test bed machines are pretty much identical, can the INSTALL be done on ONE, then the HD simply CLONED for the others? (Then set unique network names, IP addresses, etc, individually.) There must be a GOOD/EASY HD clone utility for Linux... but where? Which one? :)

That should save quite a bit of time! :)

Thinking of TIME... this is a "back burner" experiment that I'm working on in little bits and pieces, in between other projects of much higher priority. :) I can't just spend whole days on it.

I also HOPE that Rivendell will work with the built-in AC97 compatible sound cards in these machines. If not, then I may as well quit before I even get started. :(

Sorry for the "late to the game" response to this thread (that's already pretty mature by now), but:

Obviously, the point of the Rivendell Appliance is to make it *easy* for someone unfamiliar with Linux to install a Rivendell system that "just works."  Hence, the most reliable method at the moment is still burn the ISO to a DVD and pop it in the drive and boot from it, or take Fred's link and follow the instructions on installing Rivendell after installing CentOS separately from a USB flash drive.

Once I'm finished figuring out how to tweak the USB version from a stock ISO burned onto it, I'm planning to report the step-by-step process.  (That is, if the Creek don't rise... ;-).
