I did something similar.
I saved the page "bitaddress.org" on a flash drive. 
Unplugged Ethernet cable then I booted ubuntu liveCD
Opened the page I had on the flash drive and generated a wallet address and printed it.
Since this address has never been seen by a network it is secure.

Wasn't going to read through 100 pages but this is much less tedious and just as secure.  Keep an encrypted TrueCrypt volume on the same media as suggested by Op and you basically have the same solution without the extra hassle of a LiveCD/ISO/VM/whatever you're trying to do that you're not 100% comfortable with.  I read a post on reddit just yesterday about "losing" 90 BTC and it seemed as if the OP wasn't comfortable or didn't have a clear understanding of how to do this method of a secure wallet.  I only skimmed it, but losing 90 BTC at this point sucks.

Great guide, will definitely help out a lot of people who don't realize that BTC is the digital equivalent as cash, and needs protected as such.  Myself, I keep my wallet.dat on dropbox so it's accessible from the cloud, but that's more as a "checking" account (that's empty atm).  I'll definitely use the print and lock up method for my future savings account.

Make sure your wallet.dat is in an encrypted volume of it's own.

awesome post, you must protect against physical loss as well as hacking. keeping your wallet on a single laptop hard drive with no backup is just suicide

personally i have mine on a virtual machine hosted in a secure datacenter with storage on a raid array AND backed up in 2 offsite locations, i'm still paranoid about it :-)
