Welcome to TSG....

GHOSTERR.TXT is a Symantec file from Norton Ghost and if you are using disks made from Norton Ghost to restore your system I think the disks miight be corrupt or you arte missing some thing to do the job.

My suggestion is to call Symantec Tech Support and find out how to fix this, or get the eMachines restore disk out and run that to get started.
I still use my Osborne 01 with a 300 Baud modem all the time.

I was always taught to respect my elders, but it keeps getting harder to find one.

Heaven goes by favorites, If it didn't then your dog would get in first. Amen.
