if you want to completly duplicate a GNU/linux box 
you can dd the disk
but if ya using debian there is a very easy way of doin the same
in 6 easy steps 

1. install a debian box.
2. dpkg --get-selections > foo
3. install a minimal debian box no. 2 
4. copy foo in the target debian box
5. dpkg --set-selections < foo
6. then do a dselect Update and Install 

wallha you have the same box 
just need to copy the .conf's
