Are you using Norton Ghost 2003 or Symantec Ghost Solution Suite?
Norton Ghost won't let you create an image to a Network Drive, for that you need a corporate version such as Ghost Solution Suite.

If you are using Norton Ghost, then it's Local USB drives or internal HDD's only I'm afraid.

Ah!  That's better then.
When you made the boot disk (which I hope you did), did you use the relevant driver for the network card in your computer?
If not, then you have to choose the right one for your NIC (usually the NDIS driver), or downlaod the right driver and install that to the server and then create the boot disk.
You will also get the option to map a drive to a share on the server.  If you make sure you choose this option, then you should be able to see another drive letter to put your image on.
Any problems, please come back.

TCP/IP Network Boot Image is the best one to go for if you want to build a floppy and control it that way.
You will need to choose the correct driver for your NIC (which can be interesting locating the relevant one).
You may have to boot into Windows to determine the exact make/model of the NIC and then search for the correct driver (NDIS / NDIS2) and then install that into the Ghost Console on the server, then choose that NIC and make the boot disk.
