    The easiest way to do this would be to format your drive, install Win 2000, then update all your drivers/ patches install your AV software, then use something like DriveImage to create a backup of the entire drive.

    What Poert said - once you have all that other stuff on there ghost is gonna capture it. You dont' have much granularity with ghost - the lowest you can go is partitions. You'll either have to capture it all or start over and capture while building your machine.

    Create the Ghost floppy and then use that floppy to make a bootable CD (your CD burning software asks you for it).

    If you are talking about making a bootable self-restoring CD/DVD (complete with the image you wish to restore), then it is possible, but I personally don't know how to create such a disc.

    It's an option in Ghost. Just point and click.
