    I'm trying to hook my Creative IR Receiver up to my g4 Power Mac. I've found a program (LIRC) that wil allow me to use it, but I can't figure out how to hook it to the mac. It is a 9-pin serial connection. Do I need a controller card? Will a serial-to-usb adapter work?
    Here is a picture of it and some specs.

    Any help would be great. Thanks.
