comment How can I keep the same IP address for one machine in my network?
@mcgrailm: In short, you'll have to do a setup for every new computer / device that enters your network that will have a static IP. There is no getting around it. If you need more information on how to do that, please ask in a new question.

comment Automate Backups over SSH on a Linux Desktop
You should only be prompted on first login. It doesn't matter if that login is graphical or from the shell. On second login, there's a check for a running ssh agent, and if one is found then you won't see another prompt.

comment Automate Backups over SSH on a Linux Desktop
This will start ssh-agent when you login. If the script finds a running ssh-agent, then you don't need to re-enter the passphrase. Else, it will start a ssh-agent and prompt you for the passphrase. The script is only run when you login. After a fresh boot, there will be no running ssh-agent. The ssh-agent will start when you log in.

comment tar-ing / should I use -C / . or just /
That should work if you're planning on restoring your backup to the same drive. I always plan for the worse (ie, the drive dying). Has the tar command produced what you were expecting?

There are a few ways to get your script running with root privs. Using the root crontab is the easiest and most straight-forward.
