[nycbug-talk] Nas4Free and LCD display - or specifically FreeBSD & CWlinux LCDProc

I got a display for my Nas4Free server. Its a CWLinux 1602 usb LCD 
display. It is supported by LCDProc. I can plug it into my Linux box and 
use the little test script to pump output to it and set the backlight 
and other settings. When I plug it into my Nas4Free box, it does show 
up, but I don't know how to address it.

USB-Serial Controller, class 0/0, rev 1.10/3.00, addr 2> on usbus2

Since there is no /dev/ttyUSB2, I have no idea how I address this 
device. I am assuming the Nas4Free issue is I just have to set the 
configuration correct, but when the second line of the config is 
"device=/dev/ttyUSB0", Im stumped at line 2 ;-)

Any ideas?
