    I just tried installer osx-pl2303-10.4-0.3.1 on OS X 10.5.2.  The installer said it ran successfully.  But, after rebooting, there was no device for the driver listed under ls /dev/cu*.

    I saw a note below saying that it should work under 10.5.  Is there a way to do so other than using the osx-pl2303-10.4-0.3.1 installer?

    Thanks!

      I'm getting the same thing in 10.5.3. Installed the driver and rebooted, and there are no *PL* or *pl* devices under /dev. Did a kextload of the driver just to make sure, and got the same results.
