I think the sysprep step has to happen on the master machine
before the copy is taken.  It will also make the clone machine
re-detect hardware as it comes up the first time and allow copies
to slightly different hardware to work.

It is likely to be fairly slow any way you do it because it copies
all the disk, not just the used portion.  However it doesn't have
to take 'human' time if you find something else to do while it runs
and if the network isn't the bottleneck you can do several at once.
It would also work to boot knoppix on a pair of machines, set up
the ssh server on one and do the copy directly to the other without
making an intermediate file copy.
