    Installing snow leopard on a couple of our macs. I have made a backup image of the main drive so i can restore it very quickly. Is there away i can store and reinstall a mac from a standard network share. ??

    http://www.deploystudio.com/ is a reliable way to deliver images to new workstations, and is suitable for mass-deployment jobs etc.
    You'll have to set it up, but I believe you'll be able to drop the image you already have straight into it and use that.

    Otherwise, copy the image you have onto an external hard drive of suitable capacity, put the OSX restore CD into your machine and restart the mac from that (press C while the apple logo displays at boot) and when it loads (you'll see an OS X installer program load), instead of doing a full installation, go to the Utilities menu and you can use disk utility to restore the image to the local hard drive.

    HTH.
