The "Cables Unlimited" USB-Serial adapter from TigerDirect[1] is based on
the FTDI chipset and works really well.  It supports up to 1MBps and can
do non-standard rates (in -CURRENT).

That said, we've got pretty comprehensive support for USB-serial
converters.  I've bought five or six different ones, with the "Cables
Unlimited" one being the most expensive, and they're all supported.  The
cheaper ones I've tried either don't do arbitrary rates, support only up
to 115200, or occasionally drop characters under continuous communication
