    I want to reinstall the three pc's I got at home. (XPHome, XPPro, VBusiness)

    Once they are installed, I like to install other software (mainly freeware) onto those pc's.

    Anyone knows software that can deploy other software (from an external usb drive) onto multiple computers?

    Thanks in advance,

    freaking

    You would install it on each computer from the executables stored on the external drive. There's really no "deployment" here unless you first setup a network with a central server and script the installation of each application. Seems like serious overkill for only three computers.

    I would agree for just three computers but it doesn't hurt to play around with BDD. MS said it will run on XP and the Standard Edition is free.
