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

It may be that things have changed in 10.7.1. When I originally did this, it was with the 10.7.0 installer, and it definitely did reboot on its own (following a 30 or 60 second delay after finishing the download). It was similar to what happens when you finish installing the OS. It prompts you to reboot the machine, but if there's no input from you within a certain period of time, it assumes you've walked away from the machine and reboots it.

This may have changed for the 10.7.1 installer, but since it doesn't hurt anything to set up a little insurance against it rebooting, I still prefer to do that, particulary since even assuming that it has changed, there is no guarantee that it won't change *back* at some point.
