Ghost Sata USB Boot CD

My overall goal is to boot to a cd, capture the image of either a Sata or Pata HDD, and then back it up to CD's. After which, I need to restore other machines of the same exact type, with this same CD. It needs to be able to have SATA drivers and USB drivers (incase I backup to an external enclosure). My question is: What Norton's product can do this, ( I currently have Ghost 2003), and is there a concise list of switches that anyone knows of for me to modify the features?

Thank you all for your time,

your over all plan seems to suggest that the target machines would have to have 2 cd drives in every instance one of which being a burner

i'd suggest using a usb drive as your target media instead of CD....just to make things easier....you can always burn the drive image files over to CD later if you need to

might i suggest checking out the UBCD4WIN it's a "live CD" utility that is basically a bootable XP CD with a bunch of usefull tools included....one of which being DriveImage XML which is a free drive imaging suite that can do direct disk to disk images or standard drive backup style images....you could use the UBCD to run driveimage to image the target drive over to a USB drive, then use the UBCD to restore said image to the destination machine
