On Linux, the udev stuff helps with that.

FTDI serial-USB adapters have a serial number.  That lets you can associate a 
name like /dev/gpib with /dev/ttyUSBx where the x is whatever the system 
assigns when you plug it in.  This lets you plug it into any slot.

You can also setup the same sort of name when a serial device is plugged into 
a specific slot.

I'll say more if anybody wants.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
