You didn't mentioned your flavor of Linux.

Just configured DHCP in Your Router. connect it with cross cable to your pc. IP Address will be leased by the router to your PC automatically. and you are on.

You haven't mentioned your problem correctly in your first post.

You can use MINICOM to access it. it's utility like hyperterminal in windows.

You can configure minicom by running following command as root user :

# minicom -s

This will open menu based configuration. Go to "Serial port setup". Select your serial device, set baud rate and other configuration and save it. Run following command after saving it.

# minicom -a
