If you are using it on a Mac which is how I tested it then you will
see the Keyspan and modem options are what you use. The
modem should work as is if you have a internal modem but the
keyspan needs to be changed in the code to represent how it
is seen by your usb driver. Get a list of the usb drivers and then
look at where the code is accessing the keyspan and you will
see what to change. I was testing them on a G3 and G4 and
you will see I commented that it changes on the G3 so that is
the line that will need to be changed for it it work with keyspan.
