Oh, I forgot to say 
that I don't see any boot messages. 
I'm using debian lenny 2.6.26-2-amd64 as root. Just to make sure I have access to the port.

Hi Bob,

Thanks for the reply.
I have Overo Fire and my expansion board is Palo35.
I check under /var/log/messages, an it says the device is under /dev/ttyUSB0
I haven't tried other ports.
I have also tried reseating the overo. 
Previously there were lights on the overo as I plugged it in. Now nothing seems to light up except
the for the lights on the Palo35 expansion board when I plug-in the usb to the USB console port.
The last time my Overo was turned on, it was not seated well on the expansion board.
Only one sided was snapped in. The lights blinks for a while, and stopped.

However, after reseating it, with both sides pressed and 
having a click sound, it doesn't seem to work anymore.
The problem is, I don't even see the boot messages.
I'm not sure if getting a bootable microSD helps, but will try it

I hope it something else, I dont want to wait 2 weeks for a new order to arrive.
Thanks again for the feedback....

Try to create a bootable microSD card with a pre-built Overo
distribution. You should be able to boot from that.
