PXE boot and running ghost from a network location

I used this weblog post (GHOST PXE Boot Via TFTP - Tygarbyte) to boot computer from network and run ghost on a network location.
now when I try to boot several computers from the network and run ghost at the same time it gives me this error:
error 52: A duplicate workgroup or computer name exists on the network.

can you please help me to solve the problem?

I believe you will need to have multiple images or they will all be booting with the same PC name.
