I'm still using RH9 on this machine, and will be until I get a new one built. 
When I bought my UPS a few months ago, APC were providing Linux software, but 
at the time there was no support for USB.

I installed apcupsd, tested it with 30 seconds in the dumb shutdown option, 
cut the power and the machine shut down. So as far as I can tell it works, 
but you need to read the documentation to set up the config file properly.
