I Have a Dell PowerEdge 2500 and i am trying to ghost this box the nic is an Intel(R) 8255x-based PCI .
I need some instruction on how to build a ghost floppy or cdrom
better yet if there is one created already that would be great

Cannot be PCIe, as they are not supported - PCI or PCI-X. Check the slots, you may only be able to use 3.3/5V cards.
And as a sidenote ... the PowerEdge 2600 does not support x64 Operating Systems and does not support hardware-assisted virtualization (VT on Intel processors), so you will be limited on which VM solutions you can use.
I put in a sound blaster sond card in my Dell 600cs from Wal-mart takes the newer soundblaster card is notched to work with 64 bit slots i have a pair of Poweredge 600cs nice workstations one is dedicated for data recovery. sound blaster live will not work
Hope this helps same way for adding nic cars use server cars have the noch to fit.
First of all, Dl380 is an hP product. Secondly your ghost version seems a bit old as ghost 14 is the latest version. Having said that the problem could be at two ends. 1. At the ghost side where your version doesnot contain NIC drivers for PXE boot and HDD drivers for imaging. To fix this you can try manually adding the drivers to the network boot or floppy boot diskette. You can get the drivers from HP website or the PSP CD that came with the server.
Alternatively you can upgrade to RDP instead of GHOST, RDP is Symantec's offering sold by HP for imaging it's servers.
2. There's some problem with your NIC settings or card if you are trying to PXE boot. If you are using a floppy drive/ usb HDD, check from BIOS if it is detected.
okay, hate to answer my own question. Where I got confused was with the protocol.ini file that is used in Norton Ghost on a boot disk to load the network information, including the network protocol to be used (netbeui in this case) and what network card was to be used. Thus the last part of the protocol.ini file is where I needed to add the missing information. I needed to add the slot = required value to identify what one of two network cards in the dell PowerEdge 1650 was to be used to connect to the ghost server (in this case, the two cards were idenified by a number such as 0x0110 and 0x0120). The strange thing is that I also noticed that there is a third network port on the back of the server, but I am not sure if it is active or not, but nothing came of as of yet. But I am now happy to report that I can connect to the ghost server to image the machine I need to image.
