I am using Ghost from Symantec Ghost Console on Windows Server 2003. Client machine I want to get an image from is an XP.

Do I need to remove this pc from the domain? How would I clone this pc?

You need to do what is called and SID change and run a sysdiff on the hardware.  This will allow the machine to join without a duplicate ID.

You need to run a sysdiff (for new hardware) and sysprep to change the unique ID of the machine.  It is called the SID.

Yes, you create the ghost image from your "donor" computer, then do what I have stated there.
