You can use preseeding to generate an install image that installs exactly what you need. In particular, d-i preseed/late_command allows you to execute arbitrary commands. Here's a guide I've written on askubuntu.

Thank you kindly, I'm going to make custom install image. –  inohiro Aug 29 '11 at 5:22

I think that https://help.ubuntu.com/11.04/installation-guide/i386/automatic-install.html is a guide for installation on multiple computers. Also, I think that Ubuntu Server cloud installation: http://www.ubuntu.com/business/cloud/overview is worth a try if your purpose is to make distributed environment.
