Launch minicom in setup mode by typing:
bash# minicom -s
The "configuration" window will popup. Using the arrow down key, move to the "Serial port setup" entry and press Enter.
A new popup window will appear, giving you the ability to change the serial port settings. Press the A key and enter the serial line to suit your hardware configuration (/dev/ttyS0 for BIOS port "COM1", /dev/ttyS1 for BIOS port "COM2"). Press Enter
Press E to change the serial parameters. A new window "comm parameters" will show up.
In this new window, press I to set the speed to 115200bps, and Q to use 8 data bits, no parity, and 1 stop bit. Press Enter to go back to the previous window.
Press F and G to set both the hardware and software flow control to "none". Press Enter to go back to the main "configuration" window.
Using the arrow down key, move down to either "Save setup as dfl" or "Save setup as...", depending if you want to save this setup as the default setup, or save it into an alternate configuration file.
Using the arrow down key, move down to "Exit" to leave the configuration mode and go into terminal emulation mode.
