Dolly is used to clone the installation of one machine to (possibly many)
other machines. It can distribute image-files (even gnu-zipped), partitions
or whole hard disk drives to other partitions or hard disk drives. As it
forms a "virtual TCP ring" to distribute data, it works best with fast
switched networks (we were able to clone a 2 GB Windows NT partition to 15
machines in our cluster over Gigabit Ethernet in less than 4 minutes).
As dolly clones whole partitions block-wise it works for most filesystems.
We used it to clone partitions of the following type: Linux, Windows NT,
Oberon, Solaris (most of our machines have multi boot setups). We have a
small (additional) Linux installation on all of our machines or use a small
one-floppy-disk-linux (e.g. muLinux) to do the cloning.
