Adding command-line parameters to a boot package
You can add command-line parameters to a boot package to instruct Symantec Ghost to perform certain actions.

Command-line parameters can be added while creating a Standard Boot Disk, Network Boot Disk, CD/DVD Startup Disk with Ghost, TCP/IP Network Boot Image, boot disk in the Client Type window.
In the following example, the parameters instruct Symantec Ghost to connect to the GhostCast session called test and restore the disk image to the first drive.
Table 2-2 Command parameters Switch Description
-sure Removes the need to confirm the specified details.
-rb Causes a restart immediately after the cloning operation.
-clone Used with the parameter src=@mctest and dst=1.
@mc indicates the GhostCast session name. In this case, the session name is test.
The session name must match on the client and server.

Rather than doing it through software, which could be buggy as deepfreeze is. Use a hardware component such as a Sherrif card. IT allows you to set the image then turn the card on and it will always reboot to the same image, no matter what changes are made. We use them at work and they are great.
I wanted to say that I am a Systems Admin and I have been using Driveshield from http://www.centuriontech.com/ for years now. It is software only (they also do have a hardware solution) It has never been buggy.
I have about 30 PC's that I have to have locked down or the students will trash them in a day.
Works like a charm so far!
I was actually looking at that deep freeze but you say that is kind of buggy?
Just liked some of the added features but nothing I really NEED.
