The quick answer: None of them. 

When using the kernel 'visor' module, you should always and only point
your device to /dev/pilot, assuming your distribution provides proper,
sane defaults and is configured correctly for udev. 

If you're only seeing the canonical device names above, and not the
ttyUSBxx device names or a /dev/pilot symlink to these device names,
then something is wrong and needs to be corrected on your system.

I run Ubuntu Gutsy and Hardy Heron on my development laptop and I know
that it is set up correctly there, although I use libusb now instead of
the standard kernel 'visor' driver. 

Did you verify that everything is configured properly, after reading my
detailed HOWTO document on this? You should be able to find that here: 


Good luck!
