I need to create image's of both servers (poweredge 2800 win2k) and Poweredge 1800 win2003.

Can Ghost 2.5 do this? do I need a cd or a dvd for the image?

You have to get a server license to deploy and manage a server OS with Ghost Solution Suite 2.5. Look here for info on the license:

They don't recommend trying to use "Deploy Anywhere" on a server OS:

2.02 and earlier Console Clients are not designed to be installed on a Server OS:

Also, you can't use the Console Client on the same computer running the Ghost Console, meaning you can't use Ghost Solution Suite 2.5 to back up the server that's hosting Ghost Solution Suite 2.5.
