I am looking at getting a Stagecoach board (or two) and I am curious about how the serial console works. I cannot find any documentation which describes its function.

At first I wondered if it was a serial console for the stagecoach board itself or if it was to control the COMS but somebody in IRC mentioned that he was connecting to his COM through it -- but he only had one COM on the stagecoach.

If you have more than one COM how does it behave? How do you select which COM to connect to?

I'm new to Gumstix (and ARM stuff in general) so sorry if this is extremely noobish.
