What is the best solution to setup different wordpress blogs and have one central blog which combines all the postings from these?

I would like to setup different blogs with various authors within one domain. The blogs are related thematically but each one covers only some aspect of the overall topic. Besides the different blogs I would also like to have a central blog which combines the postings from all blogs chronologically. The design of all blogs should be the same. Only the header-image needs to be different.

What is the best solution to this problem? I know about the multisite function. However, I couldn't find anything about having a blog with combined postings from other blogs. Are there special themes for my issue? Maybe it would be easier to use categories instead of different blogs? Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks!

Use Wordpress MU and list all posts.

You could also run multiple Wordpress installs off the same database of posts, have a different category for each child blog, and customize their themes to only loop through posts from one category.

If your happy installing another program, Planet will allow you to pull in the RSS feeds of all the sub blogs
