Your best bet in that regard would be a drive-imaging software package, my favorite being Symantec"s Ghost. Ghost will create a bootable CD image of a hard drive that you can restore a workstation to a "known-good" state. To non-destructively manipulate/extend disk partitions on existing workstations, I recommend PowerQuest"s Partition Magic -- relatively inexpensive and (IMHO) quite intuitive.
