    Hello - I have some questions about the boot disk: The newest version (comes with Ghost Suite 2.5).
    1) HOW CAN I change the disk assignment (for the CD) during the boot up? I can't use the Deploy Anywhere because the CD drive turns out to be the C: drive on the boot disk. When I try and run the EVAL I am supposed to put the CD drive letter in AND the C: drive where I want the install to take place but they are the same !
    2) HOW CAN I change the properties of the log in in my DOS commands (Bat file) so the PASSWORD doesn't show the letters during input ?
    Here is my BAT file:

    set path=%path%;x:\ghost


    cd \ghost

    rem --- This will create primary OS drive configuration ---

    ghost32.exe /setosdrives /blind >> x:\ghost\startlog.txt

    @echo off
    echo "Enter user name "
    set /p UserName=

    echo "Enter password"

    set /p Password=

    net use P: \\perseus\img /user:%UserName% %Password%

    start ghost32.exe

    3) IS THERE A WAY to change the Default on the boot disk? When I boot up and the Ghost GUI comes up it defaults to the X: drive in the GUI...I'd like it to go right to my Server P: drive
    that we used our credentials to log in to.

    Any guidance would be very appreciated...
    I hope I explained the questions alright but if not let me know....
