What you can also do. Get a product from called Drive Image by Powerquest
(www.powerquest.com). Make a clean basic nt install, and then copy the
partition. When you are done with testing, wipe the drive clean and install
the drive image file a blank partition. Done

I'd like to second Tim's recommendation of Drive Image. Using it has saved
me a lot of time lately. I have about 20 "clean" images of NT Server with
different applications installed (Oracle 7.3.2, Oracle 7.3.4, SQL Server
with SP3, SQL Server w/o SP3, IIS 3.0, IIS 4.0, etc.). I can test with a
particular configuration (wreck it with my installation... : ) ...) and then
restore a clean image in about 20 minutes.
