Guys/Gals,

    Another posted subject brings this question to mind: 

Most likely my new build will NOT have a floppy drive.  Can I just copy the contents

of my 3 Win98 floppy boot disks with Batch Files (Make to HDD, Make to CD, Restore)

to 3 Flash Drives and have my Windows 7 boot from THEM to do the Ghost 2003 chores??

You can transfer your boot floppies and CDs to a single USB flash drive.

Al,
Ghost 2003 is the wrong version to use for Win-7.

It's handy to have your DOS based Ghost program, I use Ghost 11.5, on a Flash Drive, so you have plenty of room for the program as well as some other neat DOS Utilities, such as NTFS4DOS, Memtest86, the Password Changer, etc.
Even the smallest Flash Drive works GREAT for this purpose.

Oh,,,,,if you're building your own PC, why not just put in a floppy disk drive?  I did!  I use it almost every day.
If for some reason, you absolutely CANNOT have a floppy drive in your new PC, then a USB-Floppy Disk Drive works great.  When building a new system, make sure the mobo you pick can boot from a USB drive.

Cheers Mate!
Happy Holidays!
Cool
