Norton Ghost image restore problem

I created and image of my NT server and split the images on CD's.  My Nt server partitions look as follows
Partition1 = C:\
Part2 = E:\
Part 3 = F:
Part 4 = G:
Part 5 = H:\
D:\ is the CD-ROm drive

I restored my image of my NT server to a new hard drive and it restored ok, but when I log in the drive letters on m partitions are incorrect. I have the following:
PArt1 = C:\
Part2 = D:\
Part 3 = E"\
Part 4 = F:\
PArt 5 =e G:\

Does anyone know why ghost changes my drive letters?
To fix this I had to go into disk administrator and change driver letters to the correct ones and the it was ok.

Also When I restore my ghost image It seem that Norton utilities gets error and I have to uninstall and re-install Norton utilities afters my ghost restore.  If anyone know why I have to do this let me know.  

What I really would like to know is why my partition letters get mixed up and are different after restoration of my disk image to new drive.

The letters are logical drive assignements produced by the operating system.  I think that you'll find that your problem is a "functions as designed" issue.
We need more info about your Norton issue.  What was the error?

I resolved this by using the -FDSP option in ghost.  

For example I went to command prompt and typed ghost.exe -clone,mode=load,src=@mcimage,dst=1,sze1=4000m -FDSP

When I rebooted after restoring image all partitions were correct.
