What is a good alternative to Symantec Ghost Enterprise Edition?

I work at a high school in Chicago and I have to re-image labs of computers (30+ computers) at least twice a year.  I also have to update the image regularly with Windows Updates and such.  The version of Ghost I am using is 8.0.  I need to move to another version or another piece of software completely because we have Windows 7 now.  I am leaning towards a new piece of software though because it is such a pain to make a boot disk for Ghost.  

Can someone please give me an alternative to ghost where I can image 30+ computers at the same time?  Or, if you still think Ghost is the way to go, can you give me some indication if the setup is any easier than previous versions?

Thank you in advance!

Try 'DeepFreeze', you may never have to image again :o)

The biggest and most commonly-used vendors are Symantec and Acronis.  Dell also has a new "KACE Appliance" that is supposed to be pretty good.

Check out the review at http://www.techsupportalert.com/drive-imaging-reviews.htm for more information and a comparison between Acronis and Symantec.  Thanks!

The only problem with that is a Catholic School budget!  I have looked into that and would LOVE it!
