I, too, have a MacBook with VMWare Fusion and Windows XP installed so I 
can use some of my Windows-only applications. Question me this.... in 
order to use a USB<>Serial adaptor do I need to install BOTH Mac and 
Windows drivers? I am getting conflicting information both within and 
outside of VMWare.
