Booting Ghost 8.2 to a Network Boot CD

Ok, from what I understand we have Ghost 8.2 which is registered. We have an imagine of corporate Windows Vista which we need to push out with Ghost to 500+ machines. Not 100% sure what model are those computers. We intend to load the master onto 2 types of machines and use Sysprep to repackage each. Then we will use those as the master.

My question is this. How do we make just a Network Boot CD/USB with ghost to point back to the mapped network drive that contains the images and we use multiple CD/USB on a number of machines to do a multicast to those machines?

You don't need to map drives if you're unicasting/multicasting you just need to create a boot disk using Ghost Boot Wizard or create a multi network boot disk (see http://www.nu2.nu/bootdisk/network/) when Ghost loads you just point it at your ghost servers IP address and that's it.

Use the below to create a bootable CD that should work with all NICs, and map a drive to your serve, and put the Ghost.exe there also.
