UPS for Linux / Fedora 12

Can anyone recommend a good UPS that works well with Linux? I've had a few power glitches where I live and would love to suppress a few of those. I've been looking at the APC ones like these.
But so far I cannot decide on which one would be best. I have a server with 5 hard drives in it and I also have my routers plugged in. So I think that I would need about 10 mins of runtime so the machine could properly shutdown.

Comments?

So, what did you pick/buy?

I ended up getting the APC-BK1000G at Staples. The price was good and they had one instock. With this setup I get about 20 mins of run time with my server and internet connection.
