Ah.  For the time being I set it up to have everything run as root.  
Once it's working I'll sort out the permissions issues.

tripplite_usb is recognizing the UPS correctly:

Starting tripplite_usb: Network UPS Tools - Tripp Lite OMNIVS and 
SMARTPRO driver 0.6 (2.1.0)
Warning: This is an experimental driver.
Some features may not function correctly.

Using SMARTPRO protocol (3003)
Attached to Tripp Lite SMART1500RMXL2Ua

But then when upsd starts up it can't seem to communicate with the 
tripplite_usb driver:

Starting upsd: Network UPS Tools upsd 2.1.0
Can't connect to UPS [tripplite] (tripplite): No such file or directory
Synchronizing........ giving up

The ups.conf file has the following:

        driver = tripplite_usb
        port = auto
        desc = "Tripp-Lite 1500RM XL2U"

This is on Fedora Core 4 if it makes a difference.
