Not quite. The floppy Ghost makes is a boot disk, with the Ghost program on it with various mouse and cdrom drivers.
You have to make a backup image of the drive, and put it on CD-Rs, or a DVD-+R/W. Then use the boot disk to restore the image file. It's huge, and won't fit on a floppy.
You can't save and image on to the same drive, and you can't restore to a drive that the image is on.

The later versions of Ghost have a tool to walk you through the whole thing, making a backup images, and a boot disk.
