Yes!

Ghost 11 is the corporate version released after Ghost 8.x--and it is much larger than the retail Ghost 2003 program file.

Here's a thread regarding using the larger corporate version of Ghost for a bootable CD:  Adding USB to Ghost Boot CD

Ghost 11 is part of GSS2.0 and 2.0.1. There are two versions; one for DOS and the other for Windows.

You can just make a bootable CD, such as el-torito by including the DOS version. If you are interested in the Windows version, then BartPE is one of the ways to go.

Hmmmm!

When the Ghost 8.3 .exe file and DOS and support files exceeded the 1.44 meg limit of a floppy disk, I didn't panic (well, not for long anyway), I just set up everything on a little bootable 64 meg Flash Drive (FD).

Nero 6, accepted that drive as legal input to make me a bootable CD.
With all that extra space I was also able to incorporate my Windows ME Utilities disk on the FD, with about 60 megs of space left over.
A compressed ISO of that CD only takes up 3.6megs of space. 
Easy to upload or download. Wink

So now, with a minimum of acrobatics, I have a great Ghost 8.3 + ME Utilities boot CD.

If I want to make any changes or additions, I just edit the FD and make a new CD.
It's quick, simple and efficient and not wasteful of my time and effort.

Cheers Mates!
