Ghost 14 from a bootable USB Drive

Hi, I recently purchased Ghost 14 in hopes of replicating a workflow I have with version 8.3.  I'm hoping for better performance mostly.  But I can't seem to figure out if this is supported in version 14, doesn't appear to be but I thought I'd check with the experts.  I currently have a USB drive that I can boot to a Windows 98 command line.  Then, there's a copy of Ghost.exe (version 8.3) on that stick that I can run and create an image of my "golden" computer and then take that stick to another set of computers and perform a mass-restore of that image using that same Ghost.exe tool and my newly created image file.

Is this workflow supported?  I first don't see a simple way to create a Vista boot disk.  But even if I cross that hurdle will I be able to copy any of the Ghost tools to the drive to perform the workflow above?  If instructions are around that would be great, but mostly I want to know if this is possible so I don't waste a lot of time on this if it's not.  Thank you.

Thank you for the link.  It's not exactly what I wanted to do because I didn't want to install Ghost on the box I'm backing up.  But I can experiment with this suggestion and see how it works for me.  Thank you for the time.  -Ron

okay.. I had to register just to post this link for you. I can verify it does work, and it does so exactly how you want it. I had the same question a few months back and this allowed me to restore an image without having to reinstall Ghost or the OS all from a USB key.
