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:
