   Remote UNIX and
          Remote Network Service Plans

There are thousands of companies that have a critical need for expert UNIX support and UNIX administration but cannot justify the expense of a full-time UNIX Systems Administrator and full-time network support.  PC-Week reports that the average salary for a qualified UNIX support professional is over $80,000.00 per year.
