You are all set to begin programming. Also now on next time you connect riduino it will be automatically detected and configured.

Linux

Linux 2.4 and 2.6.31- recognize the device as /dev/ttyACM* (* is some numbers).
Linux <2.6.31 does not allow the low-speed bulk transfer. Replace the kernel to 2.6.31 or higher.


Mac

Mac OS9 and OS X recognize the device instantly when connected. Make sure the device is registered correctly in "Apple Menu / About This Mac / More Info.. / Hardware / USB". The USB device name is /dev/cu.usbmodem* (* is some numbers).
The terminal software ZTerm (shareware) works fine on both PPC and Intel CPU. Configure "Delay" to 0 in "Settings/Text Pacing.." menu.
