currently i am using the cygwin on the windows as i couldnt get a serial connection to make it work with the hyperterminal.

so the connection is now - connex, gpsstix, wifistix. and i have the cygwin. how can i get started to get to hear some sound from the gpsstix. i have also plugged in a headset to the gpsstix.

i had used hyperterminal and used the gumstix on linux as well.so would it be some similar commands like minicom -s and so on. or is it completey different.

kindly comment
