I used Norton Ghost 10.0 to backup and restore a Wndow 2000 pro machine and it worked great. Is there a similar Norton product or other product that will work on Windows Server 2000?  Windows Server 2003? Windows Server 2005?

Windows Server 2005 doesn't exist so I don't know what you are talking about with that.

Acronis offers products that will work on server.

micko: $900 is a bit much for my customer base.
Leew: The specifications on Acronis website didn't mention Server 2000 or Server 2003. Have you used this product on either of these OS's?

I have used Acronis backup software for nearly 2 dozen workstations since I first initiated this question. I am very pleased with its simplicity  and how will it works. Unfortuanately, it does not support Windows server OS's.  I believe they offer one for somewhere in the neighborhood of $600-$900, but that is still pricey for my customers who have small offices of only 4 - 10 employees.  It's tempting to just change their server OS to XPPro, but I believe doing so would sacrifice some performance and security.
