I have installed nut, gone through the steps creating configuration 
files, and gotten it working, sort of.  I used the directions here:

I have two issues:
1.  The software doesn't seem to be loading at startup.  If I execute 
the "upsdrvctl start" command, I do get:

itchy:/etc/nut# upsdrvctl start
Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.2.2
Network UPS Tools: 0.29 USB communication driver - core 0.33 (2.2.2)

I fired up the SysVInit tool KSysV.  Service "nut" is listed as starting 
up at runlevel 5, but the following are not, nor are they listed in the 
services I can choose from to add:  upsdrvctl, upsd, upsmon

2.  The gui monitoring tool, KNutClient, can't establish a connection 
with the device even after I execute "upsdrvctl start".  The address I 
entered is "CP550HG".

The files I think are relevant are:

# /etc/nut/ups.conf
driver = usbhid-ups
port = auto

# /etc/nut/upsd.conf
ACL all
ACL localhost
ACCEPT localhost

# /etc/nut/upsd.users
     password = (password snipped)
     allowfrom = localhost
     upsmon master

# /etc/nut/upsmon.conf
MONITOR CP550HG@localhost 1 local_mon (password snipped) master
POWERDOWNFLAG /etc/killpower
SHUTDOWNCMD "/sbin/shutdown -h now"

This is a Debian Lenny machine with all updates applied.
Kernel is 2.6.26-2-686
KDE is 3.5.10

Any insights would be appreciated.
