So, it's set do all necessary; thanks very much for help so far!  However, it doesn't start unless I add to /etc/rc.d/rc.local.  Is there a log to show why?  I'd like to fix standard setup, then relearn setting up each UPS to be network-/HTTP-controlled.

Is this the thread you were referring to? rc.ups sounds like it is Slackware-specific, so you might find someone more knowledgeable about that in the Slackware support channels. Several NUT components log early messages to stdout/stderr, and then to syslog. Which component isn't starting?
