It could be Charles, but this install is on (hd0), aka a fedora 10 install.  
And I'm at the point where I'm trying to find all the gotcha's.  I have it 
working again, but had to nuke every hald-addon-usbhid-ups file on the system 
to do it, and I have to start that driver directly by its name, upsdrvctl is 
failing in the startup scripts.  Once I get it here, moving to mandriva x64 
should be a matter of copying the src tree, doing a make clean and a 
reconfigure/build/install.  (says he, ever the optimist)
