All you need to create an image is gzip.  You will then need an external
hard drive to store the image to use on different computers.  It takes
about 30 minutes to create an image of a 40 gig hard drive, but that
also depends on the speed of the computer, and speed of the hard drives.
It will take from 5 minutes to 10 minutes to image a computer with a
40gig hard drive.  The Gentoo minimal CD has all of the utilities that
you would need.
