I've haven't used FTDI's USB to RS-232 adaptors under NetBSD specifically, but 
I have used them under MacOS X, Win XP/200x server, and FreeBSD, and they 
worked just fine.

Certainly there wasn't any hardware compatibility issues between them and a 
PowerPC Mac such as the 1st generation Mac mini, in particular.
