Ghost 7.5 and prior -floppy drive is the only option for destination to save image to

I have used several versions of ghost on several machines. In ALL cases, ghost recognizes all partitions and drives but when it comes time to save the image the only options for destinations are the floppy. I have FAT32 partitions and drives. I have clicked the red arrow and tried to back up in the folder hierarchy but the bottom line is that the floppy is the only option.  I have tried to make images of very small partitions and save them to large drives (fat32) but the same problem exists. Naturally, Symantec has been of no help. Is there something I should know? Thanks in advance.

I have found a solution myself: Ghost (prior to 2003) will read NTFS volumes but not save images to NTFS volumes (only FAT). Furthermore , the destination drive/partition must be a BASIC volume and not a DYNAMIC one. Of course, ghost 2003 and later has no such problems/limitations.
