RedHat 5.2 Q: do I need to load apmd to run asapm?

I know my RedHat 5.2 distribution has an advanced power management daemon
(apmd)I plan to install on my laptop when I get home tonight.

I also have the tarball for the asapm2.4.  Where I'm confused is whether I
should - or can - install both.  SInce I like afterstep, I want to install
the AS monitor. In fact, I plan to spend this evening (all goes well)
installing the apmd and installing/configuring the ascp control panel and
the asapm.  

However, I'm not certain which of three scenarios holds:

1) asapm is an afterstep-based monitor of apmd's reports.

2) asapm and apmd both monitor the battery through BIOS, but can co-exist.

3) asapm and apmd both monitor the battery through BIOS, and will fight if
both present.

?!

Thanks in advance.
