Well, /etc/hal/fdi is now empty, and because I'd killed hald, I had to reboot 
with the reset button, no keyboard or mouse, but the above condition remains, 
and the nut driver is dead again for the same reason, it cannot take 
possession of /dev/hiddev0 because according to htop, hald-addon-hid-ups is 
listening to /dev/hiddev0 and running as root.

Ideas about this?  Anybody?

Thanks all.

Cheers, Gene
