Its info like this that makes me glad that the forum forces newbies to wait before being released into the wider world. If you didnt have to kill a few hours, you might not ever know about this stuff until its too late.

Thanks!

Learning to keep a private cold storage safe is the ultimate skill a bitcoiner should remember if he forget everything else.

Armory is set up to provide an offline wallet.  You can even run your account from your online wallet, check balances, recieve payments, even make payments when signed by the offline wallet.  All explained on the site:

Amrory is excellent.  I have used it for a while now, had a first class experience.  The engineer responds to questions about it and is very helpful.  Thoughroughly recommended.

A must read for anyone starting building up BitCoins.

Bitcoin is like a variation of Schrodinger's Cat. Everything about it is both scam and fully legit at the same time until you open the box.

Without reading all the previous 50 pages, I think the original post can be summarized and updated as follows:

1. Get clean OS image, verify MD5 hashes. Can be Windows or Linux or any other OS.
2. Install on freshly formatted computer. Boot.
3. Install Bitcoin client. Run.
4. Bitcoin client will make a wallet.dat with 100 addresses.
5. Close Bitcoin client. Wait for it to completely close, or just shutdown.
6. Install pywallet and extract keys from new wallet.dat. You can also extract the private keys.
7. Copy wallet.dat and / or the plain text public and private keys and RAR them and ZIP them. You might want to make multiple copies of the same file on the same disk and also on multiple cards, USB flash drives, SD cards, and paper printouts.

Step 1 can be changed to use any Live CD of your choice, I just like Windows and I'm 99.99% certain my copy of Windows is secure as is as long as it is offline and disconnected from any networks.

Alternatively, create private keys using bitaddress.org or vanitygen and import them as needed.
