Can you not just use a 3 pin power cable which uses the ground in the wall outlet/power strip/battery backup?

They should be using the grounded power cable as sjl1986 mentioned, but if it has a grounding wire, you can screw that to the rack, which should also be grounded to the electrical service panel (by a professional).

I was woundering that when I installed it to begain with it came with on the back a screw and a cable. Where i could scree the cable to the back then attach it to something.

But I have it already pluged into a 3 prong power source with battery backup. SO do i Need anymore?

It wouldn't hurt to screw that grounding wire to the rack also, but you're probably ok as is.

Sorry, I was away from the computer this afternoon. CrashDummy is right. It wouldn't hurt to ground that wire also, but technically, the power cable should cover you as good as anything. Thanks CrashDummy for the help.
