Okay, I think I've got it. The only thing that has got me pondering whether its all good is that when I go into Device manager then click on PORTS, I get USB-serial CH340 (COM3). In FTDI install instructions it says that I should have 'USB serial converter' in 'Universal serial bus controllers', but it ain't there. When in pull the Rarebear cable from the USB port, the USB-serial CH340 (com3) dissapears from the menu, so can I assume the cable and drivers are installed?
I really do apologise for being so bad at this, totally embarrassing!
Just managed to find Rarebears instructions, his cable is called USB serial port (com3), so it looks like I'm reet.
