I purchased a USB to serial adapter for my mac.
The /dev for the device is tty.usbserial-A602LJDZ.
$ screen /dev/tty.usbserial-A602LJDZ 9600 or 19200 (I don't remember which one our rep said speed wise) seems to want to connect, but I get an error saying that it can't be opened for R/W because the line is busy.
Any thoughts or tips?

You could try ZTerm. It hasn't been updated in years but still works great in Mountain Lion.
Also, Prolific have updated their own drivers for Mac: http://www.prolific.com.tw/US/ShowProduct.aspx?p_i
I forgot which driver I installed on my machine but it works well with ZTerm.

I was able to use Terminal.
I ran an ls /dev/ and found the adapter was cu.usbserial-....
I was then able to run "screen cu-usbserial... 9600"
There was also a tty.usbserial..., but that device didn't work.
This works perfectly.
