And if you are using CentOS or Fedora, I recommend looking at Spacewalk (an Open-Source version of RHEL's Satellite w/o the expensive license).

Spacewalk is an open source Linux and Solaris systems management solution. It allows you to:

        * Inventory your systems (hardware and software information)
        * Install and update software on your systems
        * Collect and distribute your custom software packages into manageable groups
        * Provision (Kickstart) your systems
        * Manage and deploy configuration files to your systems
        * Monitor your systems
        * Provision virtual guests
        * Start/stop/configure virtual guests
