Great for use with ARD/NetBoot!

Its running now, and it seems to be working :) Spotlight is re-indexing. I am just confused a bit with the install drive selection - I thought the selected drive will be re-indexed, but apparently the app doesnt care which drive you select. The whole computer will be scanned.
