It was a toss up whether I try kickstart or simple cloning (i.e. using
dd) next.  I went with cloning, and that's working very well: super
simple and fast.  I need to figure out the details of how I'm going to
resize the LVM partition once I've laid down the image on the new
drive, but that's easily workable.

I'll return to preseeding, especially with PXE, as I see that as a
better long-term solution.  But cloning was the simple and quick
solution that I needed for right now.

Thanks for all the responses.
