    You could try programs that copy images of your hard drive (eg Norton's Ghost). It will allow you to copy hd-to-hd, a lot like cd-to-cd burn.

    Self taught Crystal Reports.. ???

    I thought self-teaching doesn't require a book... just a lot of trial and error. That's the way I learned it. The Crystal Reports User's guide (not sure if it came with the software) has been quite helpful although I have not done anything strenuous with Crystal Reports.

    New To Networking

    I also recommend using a router. Most routers also have simple built in firewalls. This will protect your computer from most harmful viruses. The second wall of defense would be that your computers would be defined by an internal address, thus protecting yourself from those IP sniffing...
