I have a Targus USB to serial port that works perfectly in vista.
Windows found the correct driver itself so no need to use the CD that
came with it.

Belkin, available most places, including on sale at CompUSA, work
well. Pretty much anything with a FTDI chip set will come with
drivers for Vista, or you can get them on line.
