    its really boring setting up each MNS blog over and over in wordpress. installing the same themes, plugins, etc. is there a way to instantly make a new wordpress installation but HAVE those preset themes/plugins already active?

    Home Page:
    Or you can simply copy your database and your site's folder and tranfer them. Plugins are the better choice, by the way

    If you have SSH access to your server you can easily create a shell script to:
    1. dump your wordpress db
    2. create a new folder
    3. copy your WP folder contents to the new folder
    4. create a new db/user (some hosting providers may not give you enough permissions to create dbs and assign users via SSH)
    5. import wordpress db
    6. modify db entries for new domain and content

    BackupBuddy is the only complete solution for WordPress backups. Backup, Restore, Migrate. I think you should try this at once.
