a full 'clean' XP/SP2 install with
  * firefox
  * cygwin (ssh)
  * openoffice

  * how to backup + restore?

ntfsclone for backing up ntfs filesystems.
rsync in image mode? can the disk image be accessed in windows?

maybe a better approach is to use qemu-img to convert images to vmdk
images or any other growable image. the disadvantage here is that it
can't be streamed..
