typically it will be /dev/ttyUSB0 for the first usb-serial adapter,
/dev/ttyUSB1 for the 2nd and so forth...

Good luck!

According to lsusb, it is listed, but I don't know where it went to or how to tell what it became.  Using ubuntu 8.10, installed bu wubi.

I know the commands for the modem, just not where to send them to.
