    I'll be 60 soon. I'm learning all sorts of new skills. Gaming (flight
    sims)is less fun now than solving computer issues. I recently
    reformatted my HD after frying something by briefly x'pmting with mild
    OC'ing. I noticed my MB had a copy of ghost.exe (ghost 6.03,
    read/write ghost.exe files). After looking in my epox manual and doing
    a little searching of usenet I decided to try to use this app. Using
    the 'write' ghost.exe, I am asked to choose the source drive by #. It
    shows only one and seems to be my 4Gb C: partition (D:
    12Gb,E:12Gb,F:12Gb,G: (cdburner), H:(cdrom). It then asks for
    destination and whatever I try it gives me an error saying that
    desination dump is same as source. I tried to direct it to my burner
    but that didn't work. i'm not good with manuals (been to Symantic
    site). I guess I need a walker sooner than I expected. Can someone
    walker me thru this. Now remember chil'un yer talking to an oldster (
    ok I look like I'm in my 40's)....

    win98se
    xp2400 (upgraded a xp 1500)
    epox 8kha+
    40gb ibm dethstar 7200
    256Mb mushkin Hi perf 2100 ddr
    samsung syncMaster 900NF (with an energy saver sticker on the front)
    etc.....

    It then asks for
    "..... and whatever I try it gives me an error saying that

    but that didn't work."
    ("Whatever") I should have said, meant trying to store the image to
    E:, F:, etc. Same error.

    Ghost will ghost a drive to another drive. Not from one partition to
    another on the same drive.

    Not much point as if the disk is fubarred then you loose your backup
    even if it's on another partition..
