Wonder if this is the right serial pinout to go directly into the interconnect adapter? 


Would eliminate a cable and adapter in my setup.

I had a prolific-chipset cable but the driver was causing my machine to crash, so I decided to get the FDTI since it was more compatible, and apparently did not need drivers (though I do a lot of tinkering so its possible I had a driver installed for another device.
