Ok, here at least for starters:

The document:


is the one I originally used to get USB working but things have changed a 
little since Gutsy.

You want to start at the point where they tell you to 
edit  /etc/udev/rules.d/40-permissions.rules

and make your edit look like:

# USB serial converters
SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device",  GOTO="usb_serial_start"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ENV{DEVTYPE}=="usb_device", GOTO="usb_serial_start"
ATTRS{idVendor}=="0403", ATTRS{idProduct}=="6001", \
                                        MODE="0666", GROUP="dialout"

under the section above in that file.

The edit of file:  /etc/init.d/mountdevsubfs.sh    looks to be the same as 
they tell you in the document.

Let me know if you have problems.
