You can use norton ghost to clone a drive in NT just like 98. Create a 98 boot disk, boot to it and run ghost. No differences.

Actually there is one HUGE difference that you need to be aware of when using Ghost (or any other utility) to clone NT. You need to change the SID (Security Identifier) on every cloned machine!! Ghost Walker is Nortons utility to do that.

The following MS QB article explains this in more detail:

Hope it helps
