Hi there;

Follow the link please:

or:

--> Choose a method to create a bootable CD that restores the Ghost image
There are two methods for creating a bootable CD-R or CD-RW disc that can restore a Ghost image file. Choose one.

Method 1: Write directly to the CD-R/RW disc
Ghost saves the image file directly to the CD-R/RW disc, making it bootable at the same time. This method requires one of the following Ghost versions to write the image file to the disc:

Symantec Ghost 7.5
Symantec Ghost 7.0
Symantec Ghost 6.5 Enterprise Edition
Norton Ghost 2003
Norton Ghost 2002
Norton Ghost 2001

During the Ghost image creation procedure, follow these steps to configure Ghost to create a bootable CD:
Click 'Yes' when prompted to make the disk bootable.
If prompted, insert a floppy disk that has the appropriate CD-R/RW drivers. For Norton Ghost 2003, the floppy boot disk is not necessary because the boot system files are stored in the Virtual Boot Partition. For detailed instructions, see the document How to save an image file directly to a CD-R/RW disk.


Method 2: Use third-party software to write to the CD-R/RW disc
Ghost creates the image file and saves it to a temporary location, such as a partition on the hard disk. Use this method when you have a Ghost version earlier than Symantec Ghost 6.5 Enterprise Edition and Norton Ghost 2000 or when you do not want to save the image file directly to the CD-R/RW disk.

Just trying to help, don't have much experience but I'll try to relay a couple posts I found for you:

Check those two out, hopefully one of those can be a answer to something similar to what you need.

I use a universal TCPIP image and adapt it by adding cDROM drivers for IDE and SATA,

This gives you network acess via a shared drive where the gHOST DOS version resids
