I don't know about Ghost. But, you shouldn't have trouble activating windows again. You will probably have to call them for another code though.

if you have the windows cd...just re-install.. if you tell them that you had a hard drive fail,or a motherboard...they will just give you a number to type in over the phone(toll free too).
ghost is a deadly program...i have used it countless times to back a a hd to cd before doing major changes..but i've always restored to the same type/size of may have something to do with the mbr needing to be rewritten, but someone may correct me,

dont buy a new copy of anything
reformat both drives, and in the initial setup, set the 74gig drive as the one with windows.

or better yet, take out the 120gig drive, reformat the 74gig, and get a fresh copy of win xp running on it, then all you have to do is format the 120gb to remove the windows OS off of it.
