Norton Ghost is not able to find a local disk on my thinclients

When trying to populate my thinclient installation on my Thinclient PCs (VIA EPIA Mini-ITX diskless computers) Norton Ghost didn't find any valid source disks. This system in fact doesn't contain an IDE disk, but it contains a M-IDE cartridge directly plugged into the motherboard's primary IDE socket.

To get around this issue, you have to "Disable the Extended Int13h support" in Norton Ghost. This can be achieved with the following parameter:
ghost.exe -FNX

Afterwards, Norton Ghost recognizes the local M-IDE cartridge as ordinary IDE disk and you can continue imaging. Took me quite a while, to find this switch...
