This might not help you now, but when you get your system up and running, I would use the Ghost bootable disc to create a custom bootable disc that includes all of the drivers on your system. You can do this within Ghost 14.
I saw something in the Norton Ghost instructions mentioning not to use CD-RW discs. I don't know why. I use DVD-RW discs without any problems and I recovered from a problem on my C Drive using Norton Ghost 14.

I commented on this to someone else here recently.
In general RW disks are considered less reliable and permanent than R disks. If you consider that the dyestuff in RW disks is designed to change with different lights and that the dyestuff in R disks is designed not to but to be long lasting, this is understandable.

I agree with you in the difference between the permanent DVD (R) and the rewriteable (RW). I have the permanent DVD without the custom drivers and the DVD+RW with the custom drivers. I've thought about creating a more permanent custom disc since I'm assuming I shouldn't have to do it again unless I change computers. I am also waiting to buy more CDs since DVDs were all I had at the time. I rarely use CDs.
