I've just put a 20 gig hard-drive in all the test-machines. I ghosted a load
of images which I've copied to the ntwk. My plan is to partition the
hardrive and keep an image on the partition. Can I FDISK 20 gig into two
10's? Do I need to use partition magic? Do I need to install Ghost on the
partition and primary drive or can I boot from a floppy?
btw: 10+ made redundant at our place.

It all depends.... as often.
here is a small table of maximum boot partition sizes for some flavours of
NT4 and Win95a: 4 Gig
Win 95b: 8 Gig
Win98SE, Me, 2000: Don't know for sure, but more then 20 gigs.
Regarding Ghost, usually you'll need a boot disk for each different boot
hardware configuration, like SCSI vs. IDE CD Rom or HD. You can not use an
installed Ghost to image a harddrive, it's just used to verify existing
images and to generate boot disks.
Regarding the partinioning, you can do as you please without partition
magic, as long as you do not want to change the partitions while you have
data on them. Ghost has a commandline partition tool called GDisk that will
do what you want and that can be used in batch mode. Give that a try.
I created a bootable CD that would autmatically partition the boot drive and
load it with an image using GDisk and Ghost 6.0
