Or do the same via network. You need to setup one maschine and have it
run read-only. Single user mode + sshd is fine. Then you build a
small ramdisk with ssh on it that connects to the server and dd's the
harddrive over.

Of cause you could make an image and place it on an existing server
instead of running one laptop as server in readonly mode.
