rent an auger!
i put up a fence using panels...here are my notes:
measure the posts so the panel ends hit them dead center.
dump the sackcrete right in the hole...half a bag per post...full bag for corner...maybe more if its either side of a gate.
you have to anchor the post while it sets...use rocks you doig up or 2x4 to prop them up.
set all your posts the first day, run panels the second day.
sink the posts so they are just over the top of the fence panel, you can trim the tops at the end to even them up.
buy a beeswax toliet bowl gasket...crunch it into a bowl and stick your galvanized 2in deck screws in it....it will help lube the screw and make it easy to drive. battery lasts longer too.
in GA i called Mrs Dig i think it was; they came by and marked underground cable, telephone, gas an power lines. and its free.
good luck...thats a big job
