I have a usb hard drive that is going to house computer images. I got my setup pretty well set but the problem is that the images are in excess of 4 GB. Is there a way I can get the HDD to boot from NTFS?

Do you mean backups of your hard disk, with "house computer images"?

You can use grub4dos for booting from NTFS.

A grub4dos tutorial:

If you want to boot UBCD also from this hard drive, take a look at (didn't try myself):

You can also partition the USB hard drive in several partitions: 1 partition in fat16 or fat32 and 1 in NTFS.

I meant backups of other workstations that will be bundled with Norton Ghost.

I'm trying the FAT32+NTFS multi partition as we speak, but am unsure on how Ghost is going to handle it.
