SysPrep v. 1.1, Win2000, and Ghost 6.5....Ghost freezes while creating generic image.

I'm in the process of creating a generic image for deployment on Dell GX 240s, 260s, and 270s.  I've added all the mass storage controllers that might be required and I've placed (what I believe to be) all the PNP drivers in a directory referenced in the OemPnPDriversPath of the  [Unattended] section.  After running sysprep, I go into Ghost 6.5 and attempt to boot up the image, and the process stalls about 40% into the process.  No error messages, no beeps, no blue screens, it simply freezes.  I've been working on this for two consecutive summers (I'm a summer intern), any ideas on where I could start?

Yes, the -pnp option is wise however if its only getting to 40% in Ghost and the locking up its not the Sysprep part thats the problem, its the .GHS file or the PC.

I would burn another ghost cd and use different media, or even slave the Hard Drives and do a Disk to disk image and that will rule out the media.

Does the PC just lock up?

Have you tried on differnet PCs and differnet CD media?

The whole process just freezes, Ghost will typically get to around 40% of the imaging process and then dies out.  I haven't tried the other PCs yet.  I ran sysprep without the -pnp switch, perhaps I should've done that?
