How to image server with multiple disks/partitions with Ghost?

I have Ghost 11.0, and a bunch of Windows 2003 servers, most of them on VMWare.
Most have 3 or more virtual disks (all Basic disks within the OS, none spanned).

Is there a way I can use Ghost to image the whole server at once, or must I do it partition by partition or disk by disk and an image file for each?

I'm looking at doing this for last resort DR purposes so I have an image of my servers.
Thank you.

I;m sorry I cant answer directly but Acronis is so much better then ghost for enterprise.  
It does image by disk or partition but you have the choice.

You are looking for Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery and it will image all the partitions as part of a backup job and keeps an index file which you use to restore the whole system.  You can also restore individual partitions if needed and also restore to different hardware.  The new version will image within windows or bare metal and restore to bare metal or virtual environments.

Hope this helps

If you do clone disk to disk, then it should work ok.
