I realize that Mac OS X and other UNIX platforms are frowned upon by
many on this mailing list since they are "too hard" for many folks to
use, but FWIW I use a KPC-3+ will a USB adapter all the time.  I use
the KPC-3+ mainly in KISS mode talking to Xastir, but from time to
time put the KPC-3+ in cmd mode and talk to it with Z-Term (a terminal
program like hyperterminal).  I have also used it with Win XP running
on Virtual PC on my Mac without any problems.

The USB adapter is made by "iConcepts" and I believe it has the FTDI
chip (though I'm not 100% sure.)
