There was very little docs included and nothing on the 
Belkin site about how they worked.  Just the one piece of 
advice:  Don't put them behind a UPS or surge protector!

I'd love a pointer to how to configure them using a Linux 
based connection to setup the 56bit encryption.  That would 
be nice to have going but requires the Windows client to 
configure the units.
