hi, we're about to take on a 50-strong addition to our sales force so will need to get a lot of machines ready simultaneously - our company has been using Ghost for years to great effect and we've used Ghostcast in conjunction with a bootable floppy.  However, the new laptops we've bought (the Latitude D-series from Dell, mmmmm) aren't being outfitted with a floppy-drive, so we need to find a way of using the DVD drive in it's place

thanks in advance!!

What is your goal here to use one laptop to clone the others?
The DVD drives in the laptops are they writable drives?
I use Drive image when the image is writen to Disk (CDR or DVDR) it also makes it bootable.

Tony,

The most simple way is to write your floppy image to a cdrom (nero, create bootable cdrom, insert floppy, burn), and just keep using GHOST
