So i am looking for disc imaging software.  Like ghost.  I think I saw one that ran off a usb drive before, and that would be perfect if anyone knows of one.

for (most) open source software, I recommend sourceforge http://sourceforge.net/

I have used Clonezilla before and it works just as well as Norton Ghost. You can get it at the following site:
http://www.clonezilla.org/
Good luck.

Check out "SelfImage: The free/open-Source hard disk imaging utility":
http://selfimage.excelcia.org

Since their server seems to be down today(was fine 2 days ago), here's another download link:

While it is not Open Source, DriveImage-XML is free for personal use and it can be run from a USB Key (User BartPE or WinPE2.1).. http://www.runtime.org/driveimage-xml.htm

For larger deployments (multicasting, small office environemtn etc), CloneZilla as mentioned by andrew_aj1 works quite nicely..
