    Does your friend also have identical hardware? If not, then you should avoid trying to copy the exact image of your Ubuntu machine.

    What you can do, though, just for the apps, is copy everything in the /var/cache/apt/archives folder to a portable medium, then to the desktop of your friend's machine and then type these commands in the terminal:
    Code:
    cd ~/Desktop
    sudo dpkg -i *.deb

    You can make an image using a program called quickstart, you can get it here: http://quickstart.phpbb.net

    Hope this helps

    You could also order an Ubuntu DVD and add it as a repository.
