You do not need the ghost.exe or ghostpe.exe (pe= personal edition I think) on a special Norton Ghost floppy. You only need the single Ghost exe file put on a boot floppy, or DOS drive. (I just us a 98 bootup disk and have the ghostpe.exe file on my fat32 'images' parition'
...Ghost only writes/reads images to FAT32 drives. (too hard to make an NTFS boot floppy device I gues), but of course Ghost 2002 reads the old an new NTFS formats.
On my own system, my system drive is a 30Gig drive with the first 20 gigs as NTFS and the remaining 10Gigs formatted later as FAT32 (post installation from XP's disk manager).
I moved mydocuments, favorites, caches etc to a second 80 gig drive as well as installing games, office, visual studio etc to that second drive.
When I need to restore an image - I only need to back up my e-mail and address book. (haven't figured out how to move those to a second drive).
You don't really need instructions - using ghost is a no-brainer.
(backup this partition or drive to a file called 'x' on this drive or partition).
I hear there are a bunch of great HDD imagers around. But I personally am a freak for Norton Ghost. With Norton you can write images directly to Tape or CD. You can split images while writing them, or you can split them at a later time, with Ghost Explorer. Ghost Explorer even allows you to add or remove files from a .GHO image.
We use Ghost quite extensively at our company. I have hardly EVER had troubles with Ghost. Sometimes it may give an error about the NT log files not being flushed. But this is easy to fix.
All you really need is an MS DOS bootflop, preferably with CD Rom drivers or Network drivers, and you are all set. Restoring a Ghost Image can take as little as 10 minutes. No reinstallation beats that.
There's a new version out... Enterprise Edition 7.5. It looks really hot!
