Well, I used ghost 8.2 corporate, on the restore, it identifies the
drive and within ghost you can resize either partition. I did resize the
partition smaller to make sure that on the destination drive we could go
down in size if needed. Have not physically tried it on a wiped drive,
but don't see why it wouldn't work.

I think I will try vl 5 on this box if you want, that way I can compare
results. And to see if vl 5 supports the internal winmodem that vl 4.3
can't seem to find.

Thanks,

Good results!

Did you use a wiped destination drive? If so, did you need to add a 
partition table with fdisk? Or, did the destination drive already have 
partitions on it? Did you use Ghost corporate or single user?
