OS imaging option available for c-class blades (other than RDP)

OS imaging option available for c-class blades (other than RDP)

What are the OS imaging option available for c-class blades other than RDP? I have a Norton Ghost Bootable CD but that does not work when used through Virtual Media for any Proliant server; blade or usual ones. I get the following error -
--------------------------------------
Loading CDROM Driver
OAKCDROM.SYS Loading Failed
ATAPICD.SYS Loading...
--------------------------------------

and things gets stuck there.

Is there a solution to this problem? Or is there any other known OS imaging software option I can use?

Thanks a lot

I was recently at the HP Labs dealing with this issue, looking for a Linux deployment software for C-Class Blades. With RDP for Linux gone, the labs recommended Insight Control Tower, Scali, CMU, and Power Cockpit. Control Tower is an HP Product, and I believe CMU is as well. Scali and Power Cockpit are separate companies. Scali, CMU and Control Tower are full management and deployment, while Power Cockpit is a straight deployment solution.

With Norton Ghost though, depending on the version you are running you should be able to set it up as a PXE server, and the C-Class are, by default, setup to use a PXE server.
