[Xen-users] OT: Staging startups for dependent machines

It's a bit OT for this list, but I'm sure people here will have dealt with it.

Does anyone have any suggestions for simple methods of staging machine (Linux in my case) startups when there are interdependencies ? Eg, most of my servers rely on the DNS, so it would be nice if they could wait till the DNS is running before starting - otherwise I end up having to log in and either restart them or restart affected services.

Or would it be easier to have a site-wide hosts file with key hosts in it, and automatically distribute that ?
