Exclamation Imaging Computers

I am trying to use Symantec Ghost 2003 to image new pc's. I've made the DOS boot disk with the ghost utility and select the nic and that is working. I'm able to to create an image of the computer that i want to replicate to the other pc's but when I try to restore the image it is asking me for the location of the next span of the image and when I try to select it the image file that is available is not the correct file extension.

The computer that I am imaging is a Dell optiplex 170L that shipped with windows xp home. I have formatted the partition and installed windows xp pro and then installed all the applications that will be need. I have a computer with ghost 2003 installed to take the image and store it. I have a router that is assigning the ip address between the two computers. All seems to be going well until I try to put the image on a new pc out of the box.

Does anyone have any experience doing this? I'm at my wits end trying to figure this one out. I've seen it done using a prior version of ghost.

I have 50 pc's I have to set up and putting an image on them verses going through a complete setup would make life alot easier...

Can some one provide some guidance???

Talking Solved!!!

Got it figured out!!!

If anyone has done this and knows of any problems that may arise from imaged pc's like I'm doing it, please let me know...

If anyone wants to know how to do this, ask, I could write a book!
