    Use PartImage to create an ISO Image of your installation. You can burn it to CD/DVD and install it in other machines like regular installations.
    Clonezilla is good utility too.

    Both are available in PartedMagic LiveCD/USB.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    +1 for CloneZilla. I used it to image a few Windows computers, and it worked great (and fast!). I wanted to try Server Edition to get multicast booting going, but it was overkill for my case.
