Yes, there are services that are set off by default and apcupsd is one of them.
 However the init script has proper header so it can be easily turned on using
the chkconfig command.  So please read 'man chkconfig' and then try 'chkconfig
apcupsd on'.  (And remove the symlinks you made.)

Thanks, it works fine!
I was removed my symlinks first and do 'chkconfig apcupsd on' as you wrote :-).
