Ghosting to another PC

Is it possible for me to make a ghost of my hard drive onto another PC, or does it have to be on a separate external drive?

If so, does the ghost need to be in a separate partition, or can I put it in a separate folder. Also, can the ghosted image be copied elsewhere?

You can create your image on any networked PC once you have the image you can then copy it to whereever you want.

Thanks Fruit Bat. I've don't have any ghost software at the moment, but am considering getting some.

If I unerstand correctly, Ghost runs from a floppy, so presumably this enables networking on your PC, so you can access other PCs on the network. Is this correct?

I assume that I don't need a separate partition on the other PC.
