Installing new servers directly to patched version

Is there any way to "slipstream" an Oracle base edition and a patchset (e.g., 10.1.0.2 and 10.1.0.5) so we can just install new servers directly to the patched version?

With Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g and Grid Control, you can clone ORACLE_HOMEs to different servers. For example, if you have Oracle Database 10gR2 software on one server that is patched to the latest release, you can use Grid Control to clone that software to another server and Oracle will look after changing any hard-coded values. The danger in copying Oracle database software yourself from one server to another is that you may encounter problems patching the software at a later date. The software relies on an inventory when patching and if the inventory is missing or corrupt, you may not be able to patch. Grid Control takes care of this problem.
