making a ghost executable floppy disk

  acein1 07:47 10 Nov 2004

i have "ghost" installed,but i believe it should be run from a floppy disk,all i want to do is make a copy of "drive c to drive d",there are no partitions on either drive (drive c 80gb, drive d 40gb),so my question is how do i make a "ghost executible floppy disk",is it just as simple as ,"right click on "ghost" and send to floppy",will it fit on a floppy,many thanks

You should have a program called "norton ghost boot wizard" installed in the ghost folder. Simply run that one and it will take you through the steps.

As far as I can tell, the boot disk will run Ghost - that, at least, is how I use it. I simply boot with the ghost boot disk and it loads Ghost.

Then I can restore a partition from an image or create an image.

My "senior moment" has me asking what is the "ghost executible" that you want? What is its purpose?

i have "ghost2003",i have made a copy of my "c" drive to my "d"drive, it looks identical to me,but ive being told that i should use "ghost" from a floppy (hence my asking about ghost executable) can someone please tell me 1,is the copy that i have made in windows going to be ok if my "c drive" goes bellyup,2,has there being a change to "ghost2003",that makes this more usable,against "ghost2002",where you had to use the floppy to do the same thing many thanks
