1. box user.notice usb.agent: ... no modules for USB product 5ad/fba/300
2. box user.notice usb.agent: missing kernel or user mode driver pl2303
I installed the USB viewer extention which worked and I can see the device but it seems I need more to acutally use the device. I looked in the extentions for more USB items and don't see any.
Any help is appreciated.

the pl2303 is a very standard device now, but you still need to get the driver from either prolific's site, or from knoppix.
