Are you sure that you want to clone 100 PCs?  Would it not be easier to
run them as X-terminals attached to a few servers?  I have installed
LTSP (www.ltsp.org) a couple of times this way and it works quite well.
Very economical.

At the very least, you should be considering running all of these
machines from a CDROM distrib like Knoppix or DemoLinux.  Nothing to
install, just copy CDs.

By the way, are all of the machines identical?  How old are they?
