see reply to 'subject: nut 0 vs f10 winner'.


i believe that you will find that most i/o monitoring is done with a prog that
ends with 'stat'.

"locate stat|grep bin/" should find them for you, then you can run 'man'
against name to see what they do.

yes, ups should be on it's own controller and nothing else *at main board*.

not 'locked the ups for its own use', but has more like *locked out* ups.
