    Here's a link to an article/utility that will allow you to take your Lion installation files and create your own boot installer on either a DVD or a USB thumbdrive.

    Eliminate the need for an online recovery install.

    The Ars Technica write up on Lion also tells you how. I created my DVD on day one. I wasn't going to download it again for my GF's computer.

    I did the same thing the day I downloaded Lion. Popped in a blank DVD and created my own boot disc.
