Which "NEW" version of Ghost?
Seems to me Jay_Jay70 the non-corporate versions, 2003 and new 10 work great with Windows 2000 as you stated, but for 2003 and 2000 server it is not recommended.

Having said that, I have used 2003 with Server 2003. There are corporate versions of Ghost, and Acronis is another popular one that is less expensive for servers but still quite a bit more than the workstation versions.

I just made the statement because the question was concerning server, not pro.
They do have a server version though, or at least they used to, I forget what it is called. Seems they have replaced it with their Live State Recovery software, which I am not at all familiar with.

Not recommending you count on it, but I think the main problem with the Ghost versions and server OS's is the drive configuration. Seems to work OK with a single drive but doesn't work with any raid configurations, at least that is my experience.
