Is this an Enterprise version of Ghost 2003?

We have had problems with using a standard version of ghost over an AD network. On a couple of machines I didn't have a problem ghosting from a shared folder. But on a majority of the machines it would fail. The failure rate was to much so we went out and bought an Enterprise version and never had a problem since.
