Ghost server and Emboot PXE services

Background: We have an Ghost  image server that we used with PXE boot ( emboot application) on the network to deploy images to desktop. We lost the server that ran the emboot  service to connect  desktop vie pxe boot. We rebuild the new server but now we don not have the emboot software. can someone guide me in the right direction ? to see if we can get any other pxe services that can connect to our already in place ghosts server. We would like to still use the same server and images that we have created.

We would like to see if we can use our current ghost server and use  recommended PXE boot services( here on Expert exchange)  to deploy images to desktop.

any suggestion would be great to start with

thank you

closest alternative is probably the free clonezilla, but it does not handle ghost images.

You would need to reimage everything.

I hope this helps !
I'm not 100% certain but i believe you can use Window Deployment Services (WDS) to deploy norton ghost images. its a great Image solution. i use it frequently. its fast, easy to manage, and you don't need any software if you have SP2 installed for Server 2003 if you would like to use it here is a URL to set it up. step by step.
if you have any questions feel free to ask

We would like to know if there are any software/ App that would work the way (emboot) PXE boot worked?

Thank you for your help
WDS IS PXE boot. just boot to pxe and it loads the image then you select whether to deploy an image to the machine or capture the image from the machine to the server. very good software. clonezilla sucks compared to WDS I've used both for a long time. Clonezilla is CD based anyway
