Of course I did (-D) so (without,) works now.  I assume if I just go 
through the setup instructions on the NUT website, that'll make the 
server automatically load this driver on boot.  I did that before, even 
with some differences between default and Slackware's unofficial 
versions, even when having to note/change a few different things.  That 
was with USB UPSes, so maybe it'll be different with this serial port 
one... forgot most the details, but it's not that hard after setting up 
a few USB ones.
