I've got a USB to Serial port adapter and for the life of me I can't

Any ideas?
From memory, it's something like /dev/ttyUSB0

Remember to add yourself to the uucp group.

You may also want to run "tail /var/log/messages" after plugging in
the device. It will show you the port assigned, or show that Linux
does not know how to handle that specific device.

Here is an example of a properly detected device:
usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 6
usb 2-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial support registered for
ark3116
ark3116 converter detected
usb 2-1: ark3116 converter now attached to ttyUSB0
usbcore: registered new interface driver ark3116

Here is an unknown device: (ETI2 eBook)
usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 7
usb 2-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

I trimmed the messages to fit - they all start with something like:

These things work better when you have the right driver for them.  :) 
Since I compile my own kernel I needed to use the right driver, which I 
wasn't.  Thanks for all the help.
