Re: MacPPC -- NetBSD compatible usb to rs-232 adapter

  I am looking to run a headless MAcPPC NetBSD box.
  In order for this to work I obviously will need a USB to rs-232 adapter.

I don't follow this statement at all.   Does the macppc have a serial
console, and you need to access it from another  system with only usb?

  What is the latest guidance on this? Going through the mailing list
  archives I see particular brands recommended. The FTDI brand stands
  out. Should I just buy one of these? Can anyone say if any generic
  adapter will work or not? Any other recommendations?

It seems that almost all usb/serial adaptors are based on a small number
of chipsets, and it also seems (but I'm not clear on recently) that most
such devices one encounters do work.

man uftdi
man upl
man umct
man ubsa
man uchcom
