I have a series of similar boxes that I want to have identical system disks.
Then use mount --bind over to a configuration/data disk for the few unique files like passwd/shadow/group/etc.
You might just want to rsync /etc, seems much simpler and can be done over ssh if that's a concern.
I should be able to just write a short script:
#!/bin/sh chroot /config useradd $*
You'll need to copy a shell, libc, and whatever else useradd needs into the chroot as well.
