I assume from your Q that in multi-user mode, you can plug in the serial to USB adapter and an entry is created for it in /dev. Is that right?
Supposing the device in /dev/is called ttyUSB0 and is a symbolic link. To see where the link and any subsequent links point, use ls's -L option, e.g.

ls -lL /dev/ttyUSB0

You will see an entry similar to:

crw-rw----  1 root tty 3, 10 2008-06-11 06:50 /dev/ttypa

ttypa is not a USB device but I hope it gives you the idea. A simple "ls -l" of it gives:

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 7 2008-06-11 06:50 /dev/ttypa -> pty/s10

The important items to note from ls -Ll are the 2 numbers after the group (tty), and the fact that the entry starts with "c". "c" means it's a character device (the alternative being "b" for block) with major number 3 and minor number 10. In single-user mode, you could re-create this device (using whatever name you like, say ttyS0) with the mknod command:

mknod ttyS0 c 3 10

I'ld think because it says 'single user mode', it's only going to allow console access, not terminal connections of any type.

Under 'single user mode', you can start what you like

We  will keep it in the runlevel 2 (multiuser without network )..

Using null modem cable (com port) it is possible to create tty terminal in the windows using hyper terminal,  putty etc., Whether it is possible to create same thing using the usb cable or usb device..

Should be - as long as you have a USB to serial converter and have the modules that support it. Haven't actually tried it yet myself.
