I'd like to hire you to improve my Linux setup

I installed Redhat version 4.2 last summer, but there are
many things that either don't work or don't work
as well as I would like.  I don't have the time
to mess around with them, but I would like to hire you
to do so.  None are essential to me, but they are worth
enough to me to pay you to do them.  The areas include:

Reading e-mail off-line (with a mime compatible mail reader)
Reading news
Tape backup
Using rdist to keep file systems in sync
Playing audio CDs on my CD player
Using my Logitech scanner
Improve ppp-on and my bootup sequence.
Make better use of my APC Backups (battery back up system),
  i.e. have it shut my system down gracefully.

BTW, I use a network provider over a 28.8K modem.  

I'll pay at least $20 for each of the above tasks.  
Send me e-mail (stanley@cs.berkeley.edu).  When you know
enough about me and my system, make a bid stating which
tasks you can do, how much you will charge for each,
when you can do the work and how much of my time you will need. Ideally, I'd prefer to deal with just one expert.

I hope to hear from you.
