Watch out for a bug in the kernel module for some of the USB-serial
adapters. The ftdi_sio.ko module in 2.6.22 and 2.6.23 is defective; it
works in 2.6.18 and is improved in 2.6.24.
Remember to add the user to 'dialout' or equivalent group to allow use
of the serial port /dev/ttyUSB0 or similar as appropriate. (Check the
permissions on /dev/tty* to be sure.) --Don
Be well - or at least have interesting symptoms!
