  xen-tools can do that, if you're running on Debian it would be simple
 to install, then just:

    xen-create-image --copy=/path/to/mounted/image
    --hostname=new.host.name --ip=new.ip.address --dist=etch

  It does assume that you've mounted the disk image of the original
 server somewhere, and that the distribution is one of the ones it
 supports, (etch, sarge, gentoo, etc), so that it can configure
 the networking details for the new copy.
