Norton Ghost Image

Need to make a copy of a Windows Server 2003 that is  on its way to its death bed. I would like to copy the server contents/settings etc and restore them to another server. Can this be accomplished via Norton Ghost and if so, how?

So far, the hardware is the same so I guess it should not be an issue.

IF it were different hardware, it would not work?
If it was different hardware then when you restored the image and rebooted, windows 2003 would have a fit trying to boot on something it never knew about!
Anyway of copying settings and files over without image?

By the way, thanks for the help
What is it you are trying to acheive?
basically, our current server is on its way out- too many hardware problems. Just want to be able to transfer it "as is" with minimal hassle. I have another server that is identical to this one regarding hardware, and another that is in top shape but different hardware
Is this a stand alone server? An active directory domain controller? An AD Member server?
It is an AD member server
How would I copy/restore the contents from this server to a new one with different hardware?
