How to Create and Restore images in Symantec Ghost 7.5?

I recently installed Symantec Ghost 2003 in one of my machine. I have another machine and I have networked these two machines. I would like to create an image of one machine and store it in another (I don't want to create the image of the entire hard drive, but just the c:). I want to do this because when I format the machine, I don't want to install all the applications starting from Windows. Instead I would like to restore the image that will be stored in the other machine.
I looked at Symantec Ghost Console, but couldn't figure out a thing. I checked out the help and some more sites. I couldn't find any direct solution.
How can I do this?
Thanks

Mab, The second link was pretty much what I wanted. But in the first step when I try to create a boot disk, there is no option to create a boot cd. The only choice is A:. I don't have a floppy disk in my laptop. Is there a way around. Also, do I need a boot floppy to create another boot disk? Can't Ghost create a boot floppy/cd on its own?
Thanks

Sorry for not answering. I'm subscribing via e-mail to the topics I'm participating in and sometimes this doesn't work very well. I didn't recieve any mail that this topic was updated until this morning.

It seems as you need a floppy even if you can create a boot CD from ghost. To create a boot Cd you need to start up with a boot floppy. Not very logic but that seems to be the way it works. See the following regarding creation of boot CD;s:

Once again, sorry for not following up this Q in a timely manner but I hope you are satisfied with the answer anyway.
