how to read serial data in beagleboard.

hi guys,

ive got a gps receiver connected to the usb port in my beagle classic c5 board. when i did a lsusb, receiver detected the vendor and productid of the receiver. do i have to do a sudo modeprob usbserial vendor= product= to register the usb_generic device? where do i set the usb settings in such a manner than everytime i boot up the board it will detect the receiver usb?

Moreover, how do i check in the command line of the board to see i am receiving some sort of data and how can i store/log the data to check thereon?..

Do help me somebody!! Thanks
