Windows 7: Creating a System Repair Disk on a Pen drive

Windows 7 RC
Creating a System Repair Disk on a Pen drive

I am running Windows 7 RC on my Samsung NC10 netbook. I would like to create a system restore disk to allow me to restire system images, etc. However being a netbook the NC10 doesn't have a CD/DVD drive and while I can use an external one, it would be much easier to have the repair disk on a Flash Pen Drive.

Can anyone help me to create a repair disk on my pen drive?
