I've got a machine set up that I want to duplicate to 5 different machines, but to have them exactly the same.

What is the best way to get a disk image (DMG) that I can store away on an external HDD and then use it to restore to a machine?

Should I boot the machine in target disk mode and use Carbon Copy Cloner on a host machine with an external HDD plugged into it to get a disk image?

Then to restore, I plug the external HDD in, boot from an OS X DVD, load up Disk Utility and use that to restore to the drive?
