Scan both sides of the unpopulated pcb and save them as a bit maps.

Then use a bitmap import tool (e.g.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/protel-users/files/BMPtoPCB.zip , you may have
to join this group to get access to this file) to import the bitmaps to
*MECHANICAL LAYERS*.

Then simply trace over the mechanical layers with signal traces.
