I am using an FTDI FT232R based USB to serial converter with Ubuntu
Gutsy. The drivers are in the kernel, the only issue I had was that
Brltty tries to grab the ftdi chip first, remove the Brltty package and
the serial device will be under /dev/ttyUSB0
All works great for PTT and CAT control of my FT897D
