Similar to Marks suggestion, but a little more versatile in that it 
let's you dump the disc image across the network to a file server 
somewhere is detailed here:

This worked well for me for a very similar situation you are in Jason. 
I've got an old WinXP laptop that I'll eventually have to give back to 
the company. I made an image of its disc the day I got it. Now I can do 
anything I please to it. When it comes time to turn it back in, I'll 
just rewrite the original image across the entire thing. It'll look like 
I had not touched it since the day I got it. :)
