Can I backup several computers, (Win NT 4.0) to an external USB hard drive using Ghost?

Are the backups placed in folders or separate partitions on the external drive?

Can these be made boot-able? or will I need a separate boot floppy for each computer that has the USB driver on it?

I'm sure these are stupid questions but I have been using Ghost to backup to CD-R's but now the number of disks are growing and growing and I'm not going to back up to 40-50 CD-R's just for one system.

Thanks for the help! :confused:

You can backup multiple computers to a single drive, create GHOST image files for that capability. The backups are placed in uniquely names files, and if you use FAT32 and they're larger than 2gigs, it just makes extra files, each a max of 2gigs. You can't boot the images, but you can restore them with a GHOST boot floppy or boot CD...
