Here is what lsusb tells me:

Bus 006 Device 007: ID 067b:2303 Prolific Technology, Inc. 
PL2303 Serial Port

	I have been looking at the new devices with Google they 
always come with a cd-rom with drivers for the many windows 
versions. They have no drivers for any flavor of Linux.

	Found it on Google and this is the story:
