If it's not already autoconfiguring, you can probably set it up to do so
using the udev system.

I just dug up an old thread that ought to help a lot:


Greg KH suggests that the device you're looking for is /dev/ttyUSB0.  If
you don't have that device yet, first do this:

insmod usbserial vendor=0x09b2 product=0x0001

You can find similar instructions in "Documentation/usb/usb-serial.txt"
in any recent kernel tarball.
