If your "partition" is from your hard-disk that is IDE or SATA (internal drive), then you DON'T need to use the "advanced settings" option... Also, if you have a DVD-RW I suggest you backing up onto that cause if your hard-disk completely fails you wont have anything to recover from!!!!!
Also.... if you are using "Norton Ghost 9.0", then some of the options are different and you can only backup onto rewritable media (hard-disks.. aka partitions, cd-rw, dvd-rw and dvd+rw)
I used to use ghost, but found that when I wanted to recover the system it could take up to 2 hours, so I switched to "Acronis True Image" which recovers my system in 20 minutes max!!!!!
