grep '188 char' /usr/src/linux-2.4/Documentation/devices.txt
(well actually, 2.6.something in my case, but the file is the same)
188 char        USB serial converters
                  0 = /dev/ttyUSB0      First USB serial converter
                  1 = /dev/ttyUSB1      Second USB serial converter
