There is an issue if both drivers (OS9 and OSX) are installed. Did you
install in both systems?

There is apparently a trick that involves unplugging the keyspan and
then replugging it just as classic as starting up, which allows it to
grab control of the adapter and communicate via NCU....

Also, did you install NCU from it's installer? Drag copying only the
program won't work since it has a bunch of communication extensions.
