GhostCasting using Symantec's Norton Ghost 8.0

I have been using Ghost 7.5 and use floppy discs to boot the clients and send the image using console through the network. Now, recently I have bought Ghost 8.0 and doesn't want to use floppy discs to boot clients. I have arount 100 clients systems.  WHAT I want to do is - boot the client systems on network (PXE) and send the ghost image.

Need guidelines about how to perform the whole task ?

Ghost doesn't have PXE capability built in.
They use the 3COM Boot Services for PXE.
For this you have to use the 3COM Boot image editor to create a bootdisk image.
Then use the BOOTP tab editor to set the image to use.
Then start the TFTP server and BOOTP server.

It is a bit of a long winded affair.  But once you have done it once it is straight forward.
