Automatically set permissions on /dev/ttyUSB0


I have a device using the FTDI chip which is *sometimes* connected as /dev/ttyUSB0. I have programs that access that from normal user-- so I have to chmod the device each time I plug it in. Is there a config file somewhere I can specify that device to always have particular permissions?
