whatever your routed interface is (ie your default gateway) will probably need multicast turned on and ip pim sparse-dense mode enabled on the interface.

I believe Norton Ghost uses multicast in pushing images to the hosts, so in a nutshell enable ip multicast routing and enable pim on all L3 interfaces.

then just put both the ghost server and client in the same vlan, that should work. and yes, 3500xl is strictly a layer 2 device, I mistaknely assume that you were referring to 3550.
