I made a Windows XP ghost image of about 4.2 GB size. I now want to write this image onto a DVD and make it bootable, so that I can apply the image any time OS is corrupted.

How do I do this?

I assume by "ghost image" you refer to an image created using Norton Ghost? – Tobias Plutat Jan 17 '11 at 11:33

As far as i know there is no easy way to do this with Windows. If you just want it for system recovery, i'd recommend gNewSense; you should be able to do a raw data transfer from a disk image stored on a DVD (though i'm not sure about this, as it's never come up for me).
