doing some backups with WinPE and Ghost....I need Ghost to exit when it completes but I can't find a switch in the documentation and can't seem to hack up a way to get it done. Anyone ever done this?

The switch is -FX

Causes Ghost to exit to DOS after an operation is complete. By default,Ghost prompts the user to restart or exit when theoperation has finished. If Ghost is run as part of a batch file, it issometimes useful to exit back to the DOS prompt after completion sothat further batch commands are processed.
