Updated the Guide to Norton Ghost

Updated the world-famous Ghost guide, to include some batch-file wizardry, compliments of Mr. JHouston (from Buon Me Thuot, located in the DakLak Province of Viet Nam). Also updated the associated PDF files: both downloadable zipped (90-KB) and printer-friendly (145-KB) version, which has the shaded areas removed to conserve toner/ink.

These are the first PDFs I've created since upgrading to Acobat v6 Pro. It surprised me to see the PDF file-size *drop* by 10-KB, so I hope no one has problems reading them.

I had originally included the batch files on the page that discusses Cloning (scroll to the bottom to see the latest batch file, displayed in gray background). But readers have now contributed enough of them that batch files should probably be given a page of their own. (It's on my list.)

The Ghost guide remains the site's single most-requested feature, downloaded ~1K times daily. It was the site's first and original "RADIFIED guide", originally published over 4 years ago in June, 2000: the month the site went online.

Since then it has become popular due primarily to the insightful contributions from countless readers all over the planet (literally). Try searching for the query-string "norton+ghost" and you'll see what I mean. Only the Symantec site itself is more popular.
