    Morning Wise. No problem. My personal UPS preference is APC. The Back-UPS-RS series should be the best for you.

    Recommended models in the series are BR1000 for ~ $250, or BR1500 for ~ $300. My pick would be the former:

    Product/Size selector:

    Battery Info: this model is a new one for which the website shows no info as yet. It is a sealed lead/acid battery with upgrade options available.
    thanks for the info.

    what of battery life when it isnt being used to keep a machine alive during an outage?

    once i exceed the time that ups will keep a machine alive...is the battery gone?

    ex...if i have enough hooked up to it, and it provides 15 minutes of backup power...once that 15 minutes expires...do i have to replace the battery?
    hmm...

    The battery is constantly being trickle-charged when not in use, so it's always at full capacity when needed. An occasional discharge of the battery, followed by a normal re-charge, is a good thing to do.

    Once discharged resulting from a power failure, the battery only has to be recharged, then it is ready again. That all takes place automatically. The battery only needs to be replaced when it can no longer hold a charge, or when the voltage sags abnormally when lightly loaded. Pretty much the same as a lead/acid car battery. I haven't had to change any of mine in 3 years.

    I run a commercial version of BSD ported to iAPX86. It's not real friendly as to installation and configuration. Free BSD however should be much more so, but may still be short of Linux, which is more in line with the needs of those just getting started. I'd recommend sticking with linux, perhaps a different distro. Next best bet is FREE BSD, as there is a lot of help and forums etc on the www for it. It's a pretty large community out there.

    You bet they do. No one distro is right for everyone, but RH is very very popular.
