I just set up a linux machine - GNome - I'm trying to install a Clonezilla Server.  I've downloaded DRBL-Live to an ISO.  I can boot to the ISO but I'd like to install it so I can use Clonezilla for cloning and deploying machines? how can I get this installed. I'm not really a linux person so I need some good directions. My objective is to store an image on the server to deploy to other desktops by PXE booting.

Having experience with Linux and CloneZilla is something you really need if your goal is to setup a DRBL server and start cloning. From the installation page of DRBL server:
The DRBL installation on GNU/Linux system is a little complicated to a newbie - I don't want to disappoint you too much but maybe have a look at the installation manual for DRBL first and then decide if you think you're up to it: http://drbl.sourceforge.net/installation/
The .ISO you've got is the wrong way to start btw.

I really cannot decide this for you, you are willing to setup a complete new system from scratch, Linux based. Since you don't have may Linux experience and didn't build anything yet, I cannot advise you better than giving a few pointers to how to setup such a system.

What kind if images do you want to deploy btw?

Windows 7 images.  I used Ghost but can't anymore so was looking into clonezilla as an option.
