i could use a little help. i purchased an APC UPS. i want to get this set up to run on a 8.04.03 headless back up / print server. i am not clear on how to add the apcupsd, apcupsd-cgi and apcupsd-doc files. i would imagine that i use wget but the specifying of the apcupsd package(s) is not clear to me using the command line.

thanks for the help.

That is the same setup I have minus Munin.

Munin is a nice addition to the whole home server setup.
