@Lyle, another option to consider is a "clean slate" partition, which is what I do. It's about the same size, 8-12GB depending on what you install. I install my OS, install any available updates, install any 3rd-party drivers I need (Wacom tablet, for example, and 3rd-party keyboard), configure my System Preferences (y'know, display, time, network, all that stuff), and then clone it to a separate, 10ish-GB partition. The next time I want to start from scratch, all I have to do is make sure that my SuperDuper! (daily smart-updated) clone is up-to-date and clone back my clean slate partition. In 5-7 minutes, I'm good to go without having to re-install my OS and tweak its settings to my liking.

Hope that helps.
