Possible Duplicate:

Use existing Ubuntu partition as an installation image?

I'm using Ubuntu 11.10, and wondering if it is possible to create an installation disk/image from my existing installation.

I need to install it on my friend's PC. I'm just wondering, can it be done, or do I have to download the whole installation again?

If any are wondering why I would bother to do this, it is just because
Internet speed here isn't any good, monthly quota is pretty low, and
the prices are even worse.
