I intend to install win2000 on a computer with ntfs, along with a couple of other software;

I heard it is possible to create an image of the newly installed system and use it on other computers with the same hardware configuration.

What I want to know is if i can clone w2k from a ntfs and what software should i use for creating the image...????

Please anyone help!

thanks.

i am in a lab at my university, the computers are the same (hardware), so i would not want to stay and install the same software and OS on each one;

i want to know if it IS possible to somehow create an image of the first installation on the other computers.

Well yes there is a way for to do want you want. There are a couple of programs that I'm aware of that will make images of your drive and in thoery should let you install it on other systems with the same hardware specs. PowerQuest's Drive Image or Norton Ghost will do this

does it work with NTSF file format? I did it once but only work for FAT format.

Well I've not actually used Ghost or Drive Image yet. But as Dredd said Ghost does support NTFS and FAT32 and I beleive Drive Image does as well

Wow, Chastity! It's been a long time since I've seen your name here!

Well... if you ghost one PC and then put that image on another on the same network it will not work. The SIDs would be the same, thus causing a problem. You would need to remove the SID from the image before using it. I believe that Ghost comes with SIDWalker (?) and that will do it. Otherwise you could always just set up a network share and install Windows off of there using unattended installation. This method is much better because it will work with PCs that have different hardware and it is much easier to update.
