It should be fine to burn from a network burner, but a better solution would be to copy the file to that machine first, then burn it locally.  Less chances of errors that way.

i'd copy, before i would cut. then delete your old image.

we used to have a "ghost server" setup, but recently switched to Acronis. they have some awesome products. you can store all images locally to the server, and push them out to client on a regular interval, or boot a 75mb CD image on the computer you'd like to image, and restore it that way... its a seriouly bad A$$ product!!!

I normally create the image on a networked mapped drive or a local USB external drive, and copy it to wherever there is a burner.


I hope this helps !
