What would you think if I use Cat5 or 6 crossover, all copper cable. I have been reading up a little on their speeds. I will be imaging only the operating system as protection against Hard disk failure. I back up files on a DVD regularly.

As Anupam says, by far the easiest and most reliable way to save and store backup images of your PC's would be to use a portable external HDD, or at a push, a large USB stick.
I have got TeamViewer but I like to play with gadgets. Hence, the idea of getting a crossover cable to pay with!

Thank you,
