Subject: Fedora 12 problem with USB serial device

I am using an FTDI232RL usb-to-serial converter for a serial port on my laptop running Fedora 12.  For some reason, this is recognized, but I am unable to communicate with the device.  When I plug in the device on my desktop running Fedora 9 it works fine (I do need to add myself to a different group to have access to the usb port however (uucp vs dialout).  Here are the responses to the various commands showing that it set up properly:

I am very perplexed as this is exactly the same output I see on the Fedora9 machine except the group is uucp instead of dialout.  I can reconfigure the port with the stty command, but nothing runs through the port.  I have also tried this both with selinux enabled and disabled and there is no differnce in the behavior.  Any suggestions?
