Use a direct URL (ie. http://xxx.xxxx.com/Images/yourImage.jpg) the /home/www/html... will just confuse the server etc. It can work, but your best bet is a direct URL

$source_file = 'U:\\sites\\put\\upload\\2003_image5_76.jpg';

I think there might be some confusion. PHP is a server side language. It cannot see anything on a clients computer that is not sent through the browser. the $source_file would have to be a file that is already on the server in a tmp dir or something. PHP alone cannot read a file off of a remote computer.

see http://us3.php.net/features.file-upload for more info on handling file uploads
