Default FreeBSD Server Image

Hey all, I'm going to be setting up and configuring a FreeBSD 7 box for our web-server at work.

If say I had 5 or 6 identical servers that I wanted to run the same basic FreeBSD install on, what would be the best way to do this?

Ideally I'd like to set up one box, harden it and install everything I need, then create a disk image that I can use to install on the other machines (or use for disaster recover, if say I needed to reinstall the OS really quick).

I've used Ghost before in a Windows environment but I don't have as much experience with Unix. Any suggestions? Thanks!

EDIT: I don't necessarily need a physical "disk image," doing it over the network would also be acceptable.
