Under windows I used a Radio Shack USB to Serial port adapter to access several electronic timers. Is there any way to use this adapter in ubuntu with win4lin running windows? I'm sure there is more information needed so please be kind, tell me what you need to know I will do my best to provide.

with win4lin running windows? Correct me if I am wrong ... but just like WINE, "win4lin" just emulates the API layer of Windows, it does not virtualise any hardware?

To use external USB devices and assign them to virtual instances of Windows you'd have to use "VMware Server" or "Virtual Box".
