The backup and restore part could easily be done with a flash drive.

Ehow has a short howto.

In fact, techrepublic has a great article on all sorts of rescue tools.

Why on earth is a link to a step by step article talking about how to do exactly what he's asking, (he even asks for a link to a howto in the question) worthy of a downvote? –  Brian Feb 24 '11 at 18:07
