But crossing the Site Collection can't be accomplished without building your own solution (which typically involves writing code). The Microsoft guys and girls have released a tool that can help you with these scenarios: SharePoint Cross-site Configurator (http://www.codeplex.com/SPConfigurator)

The SharePoint Cross-site Configurator
The tool automates the process of deploying the MOSS site settings in all or selected sites in a server farm as shown in the following list:
Note The Tool also enables IT administrators to customize the site settings to be deployed.

  • Applying Master Pages across a SharePoint server farm.
  • Setting up Web Titles for all or selected site collections across the farm.
  • Applying audit control settings to all or selected sites.
  • Adding advanced settings such as “Allow content type management” to all types of lists.
  • Adding a new Expiration Policy at the site collection level.
  • Adding a new Expiration Policy to content types, lists, and documents.
