regarding question 3
I'm assuming you're trying to send an image to a share on a samba server.  You should be able to do this without a problem provided you have the share set up and have write permission to the share and directory.  If you're using Ghost 6.5 it has a wizard that walks you through setting up such a boot disk, too.
