[Tinyos-help] Problems with TestSerial

My apologies for removing the traceback.
The error was:

bash: serial@/dev/ttyUSB0:micaz: No such file or directory

I am quite sure that the base-station was attached to USB0 (by the way, I'm using a USB to Serial cable), since, 
that is the only one I have been able to use for the motes, and I have checked /dev/ to confirm that...
Now I'm wondering if something is wrong with my computer itself...if that is the case, then it may be 
easy to solve the problem I guess though I won't be able to test this out on another machine until tomorrow
