Being a new iMac, my Mac shipped with Lion preinstalled and without a hard copy in the box.

I wish to create a copy of Lion OS just in case my HDD falls over and I can't access the recovery partition on the drive. I tried to follow the links in the Lion FAQ sticky at the top of this forum, for creating a Lion DVD/thumbdrive, but the links no longer work.

Every search result on google, talks about creating a copy from the Appstore download, but being a new machine I didn't download if from the Appstore.

Anybody know how, or can point me in the right direction to create a bootable copy of Lion if it all goes Pete Tong. OR if the hard drive does implode, is the recovery partition still accessible?

Many thanks.
