Using Mountain Lion for Universtiy Usage

Hi everyone, At the risk of irritating everybody on the board, I would really appreciate a little help with creating a Mountain Lion image to be used on roughly 12 MacPros by students at the university I work at. I'm a Windows kid and have so far found the transition to Apple OSs' fairly confusing. The previous guy who took care of this process at the start of every year has since left and now I am tasked with the job. I was wondering if anyone knew of a website that points out all the possible snags of this process and what to look out for, as well as just a general guide on how to set up an image with all the appropriate user settings, etc. Thanks very much for any light you can shed on the matter.
