I just bought a D-Link USB to serial converter (model DSB-S25) and it works
great.  I bought it from buy.com for $36.00.  The only caveat is that you
must be running Win98.  I cannot say if it works with CT under dos (most
likely not) since I haven't tried it with CT.  I bought it to use with my
laptop to run my logging software (Paketcluster and rig control) using a
windows logging program.
