Serial to USB device

I have a APC UPS. It came with a RJ11 - USB cable. My system sees it:
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 051d:0002 American Power Conversion Back-UPS Pro

I did modprobe usbserial. I can't figure out what to use for a device.

Pointers please.

here's an idea -- run a ls -lR in /dev before insertting the module and
then run it again after, be sure to pipe the output to 2 different files
and run diff on them and read the output.

If you have a static /dev (no devfs or udev) than this won't work.

If you have devfs please upgrade to udev.
