Deployment of Erlang code on numerous nodes

Greetings,

I'm trying to come up with a scheme to deploy erlang code to tens (even
hundreds) of machines, assuming that the machines have the erlang run-time
(e.g. the erlang rpm) installed and a simple startup script. From there the
machines should be able to load the code they need, access a configuration
database (stored in Mnesia for instance) for various parameters and start
running.  Are there any facilities that implement that kind of
functionality? Is it the right thing to do in the first place? Rather than
writing perl scripts to fetch the code by ftp and so on to deploy, I'd
rather have as many things defined within Erlang itself.
