Ghosting Dell Poweredge 1950 Server using Norton Ghost 10

Please could somebody inform me how I would create a ghost image of a Dell PowerEdge 1950 server using Norton Ghost 10.

I have tried booting with the Ghost CD but it does not detect the network card, which is a Broadcom Gigabit Ethernet II Adaptor.

I want to place the image on our network so I need to be able to map a drive, which will require the network drivers.

first of all what kind of os is installed? if it's server version you won't be able to use Norton Ghost 10, because it doesn't support them. And as far as i know it doesn't suport backup to network drives.

We use Norton Ghost 10 to back up a central network location for all our desktop and server machines. So it does support backing up to the network. We have just found that it doesn't work with this particular server. It does, however, work with other PowerEdge servers.

The OS is Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. It is on a server based machine. I may be wrong, but I assumed that ghosting an entire disk would be OS independant is this correct?

Any further help would be much appreciated.

As the Ghost disk boots,do you hit F6 to load up the 3rd party driver(like Broadcom)?

You can create ghost floppy disks and add NIC driver in, then boot from A:\ and start to ghost.

Also, you can use the link below to clone:

I've had alot of problems with Broadcom and DOS drivers.  Got a few new laptops with new cards and couldn't get Ghost to see them, finally found this:

No problems, except that so far, I can't make it work on a bootable thumbdrive - I have to use a floppy.
