Make a Vista Install Disk?

Dell still provides a plain Vista disk, with another disk for the drivers. Gateway has recently changed from providing a plain OS disk to making you make the recovery and apps/drivers disk (using the Acer eRecovery software). Toshiba has gone from their image based recover disks to having you make the OS and the apps/drivers disk. HP still makes you make full recovery disks. I can't recall what the Asus and Lenovo/IBM recovery disks do - but I think that they're either image based or like the HP disks.
I do several system reinstalls a week and prefer the recovery disks over the plain disks - it's just so much easier. In the past we'd do reinstalls with a plain OS disk but were spending too much time searching for drivers. So we've taken to asking customers to provide the disks - and if they don't have them we point them to the manufacturer to order a set (much cheaper than buying a copy of Vista).
