Need advice on how best to probe a 2nsec 100A 4000V pulse

Let me describe my application. I'm building a Marx-like impulse generator that will (hopefully) generate a 100A 2nsec impulse in a 15nH coil. I'd like to probe the voltage on the inductor directly. Barring that, I could use a weakly coupled pickup coil. My scope is a 54855A. I'd like about 10 points on the pulse.
What's the best way to probe this without corrupting the pulse or killing the scope?
