Yes. And since you appear to be using a USB-to-serial converter, you
should use the 'megatec' driver from nut-2.0.5.

No. Apparently, the UPS has a serial connection and is connected through
an USB-to-serial converter, so the megatec_usb driver can't be used. You
need the 'megatec' driver from nut-2.0.5.

There may be RPM's for RH9 for nut-2.0.5. I don't know, I only have RPM's
for openSUSE. Anyone?
