    Is it possible to download cpanel to a CD for installation on multiple machines?

    If I am building 6 boxes simultaneously, is my option to run "sh latest" on all of them?

    Yes its possible to do with a dvd or mutli cds. However there are a few ifs.
    The easiest way yo do it is to copy all files from the first server to a dvd or mutli cds, then do a minimum install of the OS and then copy all files from the dvd to the new server overwritting existing files, BUT this will only work if the server hardware is exactly identical.

    You can pick through and just copy the whm/cpanel files to a dvd but the time factor to do this is going to make this method the slowest. Only way this would be time effective is if your limited on bandwidth and doing 20 or more servers

    If you have plenty of available bandwidth or mismatched hardware then do the latest.sh

    Go on, have a guess
    If they hardware is identical, then it's probably easiest to ghost the first server and restore the same image to all the others as most NOCs do. As you say, not ideal unless trying to save bandwidth. If bandwidth isn't a problem, setup all the servers to the same point and then run the install all at the same time - 6 servers in the time of 1 ;)
