No - you cannot do a redirected restore of the system state. That's why in the disaster recovery procedure at http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/236286.htm it states that "The computer name, Windows directory and the file system (NTFS) must be the same as the previous Windows installation."

The document in the link is for Backup Exec 10 and expired in Aug 2006, is this info still current?

It sure is. Disaster recovery for Windows and the latest versions of Backup Exec is exactly the same.
