        Be aware that none of the USB-Serial adapters will pass the
Appletalk protocol. Make extra certain you have NCU set for serial
connection not Appletalk, if you are having troubles and using Keyspan or
similar device and the MP. Also make sure you are using the "right" serial
device to talk to, there will be several to select from in NCU (at least
there are on my B/W G3 with Keyspan).
