Works out of the box in linux 10/28/2008
This review is from: TRENDnet Model TU-S9 26" USB to Serial Converter
I needed this to connect to my ALIX-based embedded firewall. It works without a driver on my linux (Debian) system except to figure out the serial line I had to run $ 'dmesg | grep tty' and it shows up as ttyUSB0. Set this in your serial client connection software. I tested it with minicom and Putty which should be in the packages for your distro. Debian makes liveCDs if you don't have a *nix box.
You might need a separate null modem cable (Female to Female) depending on the device you are connecting to and/or a usb extension cable if you are using this from your desktop.
