Cloning a server

I am setting up a Citrix server and I have a question.  I just completed my 1 server in my farm and now I want to clone it so I can have a 2 server farm.  What I have learned is Citrix recommends RAID1 configururation.  I set my server up as RAID5, since this is what we use on most of our servers.  After talk to the Citrix forum, I got information of how to clone my server but that is based on RAID1.  I just spent 3 days setting up my server and I don't want to rebuid it to RAID1.  Does anyone have any information how to clone a server running RAID5.  Reading several post and application white pages, nothing specific is recommended.  Other say use Ghost, while Symmantec says it doesn't support it.  I am running out of resources to get information of how to clone a RAID5 server.  

Hardware is Dell PE1750, 3 drive RAID5 config.  

Thanks

Although Ghost does not support this, it can be done, although it is an off and on proposition.  We discussed this in a thread I started last year..

A better product would be PowerQuest V2i Server Edition..

I don't recommend ghosting Citrix at all it will only cause you grief. You should have a base install w/o Citrix that is prepared for Citrix.
