The set of scripts I mentioned is for automating configuration and
deployment of any machine to have the tools and dependencies to run Cloudman

paths as to where the tools are installed but it should work pretty much
out-of-the-box for any machine.

I've heard of the afgane project - it has been suggested to us that this
would be a good path to take for our local cloud. Is it specifically
designed for creating AMIs, or is it really for automated configuration and
