Ghost broadasting on all ports on Procurve 2900

Hi, I have come across a small problem when we are running ghost in Multicast and unicast mode. Basically we have a ghost server setup (Windows 2003) which is directly connected into a HP Procurve 2900 switch at 1Gb. We then have a small Netgear 8 port 1Gb switch which we use for Ghosting laptops. The problem we are having is that when we send the image out to the laptop the image seems to broadcast over all the Procurves ports. This then causes major problems around the rest of the network as the main Domain Controllers all link into the Procurve as well. Any assistance would be most appreciated.

On the Ghost Cast Server Under the File menu should be an Options item and under that should be a setting to limit the bandwidth that the server can use.  We had a situation where we took our network to the ground because of a Ghost broadcast. After implementing this Bandwidth throttle, the problem went away.
