Question huge switch problem

i have a ghosting project i am working on. im trying to ghost over the network but the upload dp wont work any suggestions? the switch is a 4 port netgear Well sadly upgrading isnt quite an option atm. The main problem we're having now is on the computer that we'd like to back up the image. Ghost loads up fine but once Multicast is selected it is unable to find the DHCP then the whole program shuts down, cant even get to the bit where ya select a session name.
The Ghost Cast server is running off of Win 2003 Server, which is having a problem of its own. Once plugged into the uplink slot on the switch (or hub, tried both) and uplink is selected, there are no blinking lights, no bells and whistles and the comp says the connection is down.
I know this is a whole mess load of problems but any input would be useful.

upload dp? default partition? are you trying to create images of machines on your network or push an image to machines on your network?

you are having trouble creating the ghost image you wish to push out, correct? you shouldn't use multicasting for this. run ghost normally on the machine to be imaged and save the image on the server.

then,

from http://www.sd01.k12.id.us/technology...multicast.html

Multicast Ghost

These directions guide you through multicast ghosting PC(s) using an existing Ghost image.

Install Ghost locally to a PC other than the one being ghosted.

Go to Start, Programs, Symantec Ghost, Multicast Server.

In the Session Name field, type in a name for the session (any name is ok).

To populate the Image File field, click on Browse and browse to the image that you wish to multicast out.

Click on Accept Clients.

Go to the workstation that you wish to send the multicast image to and insert a Ghost Multicast Boot Disk.

Boot the PC.

When Ghost begins, click OK.

Select Multicasting and enter in the session name that you entered on the Multicast Server.

Click OK, OK until the PC is waiting for host to send image. You can remove your multicast boot disk at this point.

Boot each PC that you wish to reimage with your Multicast Disk.

When you have booted up and started Ghost on each PC that you wish to reimage, return to the PC that you are running the Multicast Server on and click Send.

When the image transfer has completed, close the Ghost Multicast Server program and allow Ghost to reset each machine. (Note: Remember to remove boot disk if you have not done so already.)
