Hi, I just downloaded and installed Lion from the App store but then I realised that means I wouldn't have the actual Operating System on CD.

What do I do if I need to reinstall something and I don't have it? Am I entitle to a copy of it?

Hear from you soon!

Lion creates a recovery partition to restore the system

you can create a boot disk from the installer. (you may have to redownload it)

You can use lion on all of your own personal computers.
