Ghosting from image over a network

Is this possible? I haven't looked at any recent versions of ghost or other imaging software but I'd like to be able to store ghost images on one computer and just image other computers from there over the network.

Yep Ghost enterprise will work ... however, if you want to make a bootable CD it's more of pain in the ass.

From first hand experience, i concur..


This helped a lot:

The trick is, you gotta have the correct DOS driver for your network card, and then know how to map a drive share using

net use z: \\server\share

thats all really. Latest version of ghost for DOS (8.2 enterprise) can see NTFS for XP & 2k3 partitions.
