If you preinstall the Prolific PL-2303 (either commercial or open source 
driver version, at least on Mac) or MOSChip, you'll have drivers for 99% 
of the USB to serial adapters out there.

I still long for the day when someone makes a true 16550 based USB to 
serial adapter...   Some of the stuff I need to reprogram at the shop at 
times does not like the cheapie chips that are most common  - I've 
bricked an APC network manager card at least once for that specific 
reason...
