When I got my first Mac I borrowed a friends keyspan adapter for a  
few days and it worked fine.  When he asked for it back (;-(), I had  
a look around for one locally and found a usb<>rs232 adapter in a  
local Maplin store - the assistant looked at the package and read off  
'works on MacOS' so I went away happy.  When I got home and had  
ripped the packaging open it would not pick it up at all on my Mac,  
so I had a closer look at the wording on the package - not much of it  
in english and sure enough it did say it would work on MacOS - but it  
didn't say anything about MacOSX. Probably the assistant didn't know  
the difference.

since then I've used several keyspan adapters and all were picked up  
correctly by MacOSX.
