Save the lines below (starting with "# Machine ...") as minirc.console
wherever your minicom config directory is (under Debian it's
/etc/minicom).  Then "minicom console" should start up a session to
the device.

Note that you may need to change /dev/ttyS0 if you're using com2
instead of com1, and that the user running minicom needs rw access to
/dev/ttyS<whatever> (under Debian adding a user to the "dialout" group
takes care of this nicely).

# Machine-generated file - use "minicom -s" to change parameters.
