If the machines are that old then they probably have hard drives under a GB...

Might be easier to pull the hard drives and attach to another machine for imaging purposes!

Ghost 5 is old. I have no idea where you'd get it. But I like n2fc's solution. Just pull the drive out and use something like ODIN or Acronis.

take the harddisk out of the old machines
connect it via external IDE Sata USB enclosure
Use any latest imaging software
i would prefer using Acronis :)
