Can anyone tell me how to (try) to install a USB to serial converter on the Pi? It's a Prolific type.

Thanks.

It should work but there have been reports of some problems, for example:

1. Plug it into the USB port.
2. ???
3. Profit

If that doesn't work, come back and someone can help you troubleshoot.
