Best Power makes excellent UPSes. I have a Patriot Pro 1000 VA model,
and it keeps my machines running fine. It comes with a serial connect
cable and a CD with pre-compiled binaries for i386 Linux. Of course
it also comes with Unix driver source code, which compiles very easily
(and is quite cleanly written and documented). It will work fine on
every Unix platform I could think of.
