Recover from Ghost Image on DVD automatically

Here is what I am trying to accomplish:
I have an ghost image that works fine. I want to be able to put it on a dvd - -boot to dvd  - - and it start restoring the image from the DVD.

I have read several posts here on the forum but none seem to go into detail as to what needs to be done. For example the link below:

It has great information, but I need someone to back it up a little and go into detail.
I have read some stuff about configuring the Config.sys then the autoexec.bat. Thats all great, but I need some more information.

I would restore the image to the pc with the boot disk...then use Acronis True Image or BootIT from to create this boot disk.  Every attept I've ever made to get Ghost to boot directly off the disk has failed.  I was successful with both and acronis.  Tho the latter is less dependable unless you are using the exact same dvd hardware.  

Good luck!

All you need is a boot image that can boot the DOS version of GHOST, with the usualy CD drivers
