I'm using a cable but it has the same basic configuration.

Is it required that I connect the Verdex to the Robostix via the STUART or can I use the FFUART? This is really just intellectual curiosity. I have no problem using the STUART instead of the FFUART so long as I can use the FFUART to communicate with my SSC-32. I believe this is possible but I'll have to test it to be sure.
Got them and compiled them
successfully and in the case of the Flash-LED I had no problem loading it onto the Robostix. Now this is where it gets interesting. I notice that if I do not connect the two boards the LEDs on the Robostix flash. If I connect the two boards then the LEDs on the Robostix do not flash if I apply power through the barrel connector on the Robostix. They do flash though if I apply power through the BOARD port on the Robostix however in this configuration the Verdex does not power up. Needless to say, when the Verdex does power up I get nothing from the Robostix via sertest.
The documentation you have already compiled has proven quite useful and I want to thank you for that. With that said any additional help you can provide would be highly appreciated. I am quickly approaching my deadline for this project and this is one of the last tasks I must perform to complete

If you build a little jumper block, like the one with two yellow wires
in the first picture of this page:<http://docwiki.gumstix.com/index.php/Robostix_gumstix_ISP>
then that will connect UART-0 on the robostix to the STUART port on the gumstix.
The Flash-LED program on this page:<http://docwiki.gumstix.com/index.php/Robostix_samples>
writes to both UART ports on the robostix. You can use the sertest
program on the gumstix at 38400 baud to read the data (that's the baud
rate that Flash-LED uses).http://www.davehylands.com/gumstix-wiki/wikifiles/sertest/
