Could have guessed though ;)

Still, it comes down to what one is most comfortable with.
And if you want to, you can use a preseed file (IIRC) that customises
your Debian install, similar to RedHat kickstart. Used it once to
generate a working, configured VPN server from an ISO.
... leaving out other methods like puppet, FAI etc, but I've never used
these in anger yet.
