Redhat 7 and Norton Ghost

Note: I'm a total Linux newbie - know almost nothing about linux short of doing a basic installation.

Does anyone have any experience with using Norton Ghost disk imaging with Redhat 7? After i boot up with ghost and select the disk i want to copy, it says it cant read the boot partition and proceed with a full sector by sector copy? after hitting yes it only seems to image one partition, even though i'm selecting the whole disk to be imaged. it's like Norton Ghost doesnt see any other partitions on the linux drive even though there are 5 or so partitions.

any suggestions?
