10.7: How to get a full Lion install disc for a new MacBook Air or Pro

doesn't work for me.
tried it twice to an external hd but no matter how fast you are it deletes the folder immediately and leaves you with some hidden files totalling 230mb,
just wasted 10gb of my monthly download allocation :(

That's really odd, and not what I experienced. If it is doing this, you could get around it by making a hard link of the file while it is downloading, and putting it in a different folder. This way, even if the installer manages to delete InstallESD.dmg, you'll still have a copy sitting around somewhere else, since a file doesn't get deleted until all of its hard links are deleted.
