Really a small cosmetic, trivial change; anyway:

The installer shows the following instruction sequence to uninstall the driver:

-open a terminal
-type: kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/osx-pl2303.kext/
-The command prompt ask for you administrator password
-type: sudo rm -r /System/Library/Extensions/osx-pl2303.kext/
-The command prompt ask for you administrator password
-type: sudo rm -r /Library/Receipts/osx-pl2303.pkg/

However on Leopard (at least):

[1]
> kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/osx-pl2303.kext
reports "permission denied; you must be root to unload kexts", the instruction should have been
"sudo kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/osx-pl2303.kext"

[2]
> sudo rm -r /Library/Receipts/osx-pl2303.pkg
reports "/Library/Receipts/osx-pl2303.pkg: No such file or directory", as the package name has changed since the instructions have been defined; the instructions should have been:
sudo rm -r /Library/Receipts/osx-pl2303-*
(future proof, as the package name contains the version)

Cheers
