Who can recommend me a UPS device for the use with a Linux PC which will automaticly shutdown Linux after a loss of power?
(Is it also possible with the old Leadman UPS LU-550A?)

Bad news - If you want your UPS to send any message to your
computer - you need it's proprietary drivers. Unfortinutely,
as far as I know there is no manufacturer which decided to
write drivers for Linux.

the Tripp-lite UPS's and the APC UPS's are well supported by Linux - look at http://www.dyer.vanderbilt.edu/server/apcupsd/ in particular for APC support.
