I have been trying to log into gumstix(connex 400+console+wifi stix) through vmware with ubuntu 7.10 gutsy gibbon image connected via serial and usb cable to the host.

I put in minicom -s and do the necessary ammendments under serial port
but once i save and exit from the menu and power in the gumstix, a new page displays and stays kind of stuck up with the note press ctrl-a z for help on special keys.

how could i possibly move ahead
