Yes. On attaching this converter, the PL-2303 gets recognised and the  
appropriate module gets loaded. Not that it makes it work properly  
though :-(

The results so far are that the only one that works under OS X is the  
Keyspan. Under Windows it is the Prolific and under GNU/Linux... none  
so far :-( [*]

[*] Yes - with the exception that I still didn't get the Keyspan  
initialised properly so I can't be conclusive but ATM the results are  
as follows:

		OS X	GNU/Linux	w2k
Keyspan		O	?		X
Prolific	X	X		O
Cypress		?	X		?

where "?" means either lack of driver or driver initialisation  
problems, "O" means OK and "X" means doesn't work properly.

Speaking just for me, I don't think I have Linux blinders on my eyes.  
I can see other platforms, but I *choose* to ignore them on the  
theory that if I ignore them hard enough they will go away.  - Eric
