This is a know problem with Norton Ghost. It gets an error with the 
FC3 partitions. It does work if you have it do the sector mode image, 
but then it is copying all sectors of the disk, and is much slower and 
creates a larger file. 

Both G4U and G4L have no problem with the imaging of the 
systems, but neither currently allows for DVD imaging.
