You use your OEM preinstalltion kit to sysprep one machine, ghost it, THEN
install it to each workstation.

Sort of - you actually install everything, drivers, etc... Then you run
the SYSPREP command (google for it), which will make the machine clean
of activation - then save the ghost image to restore on all the other
machines.

When you boot the other machines it will be just like you've purchased
it from Dell only with all of your applications installed and asking for
your activation keys.
