Good book recommendations ?

For configuration and change management Puppet is a great tool.  Most people
using Puppet will use PXE with preseed or jumpstart to provision and boot
strap new servers to the point that Puppet can take over and push the
necessary configurations and packages to it.  This lets you have one master
preseed or jumpstart configuration rather than several different and one off
ones for different server roles.

Puppet has pretty good documentation on their site including best practices
at  If you want a book I would wait a couple
of months for "Pro Puppet" to be released as the currently available puppet
books are from 2008 and are a bit dated at this point.
