duplicating Puppy LInux Installation


I have installed Puppy Linux on 2 GB DOM (Full Install Method) and have done some customization. Now I want to duplicate this DOM to 10 other identical DOMs.

What is the best method to duplicate the disk including MBR, partition table, Grub bootloader & whole linux file system.

I have tried dd command to copy but the target disk is not booting.
