linux serial port to router console port connection?


I am trying to connect my suse Linux laptop to my Cisco routers CONSOLE port?
how do I do this?
I looked online but I have not found anything yet?

in windows u connect the serial cable from the serial port of your computer to the console port of a router then you just run and configure a terminal emulator like HyperTerminal to connect to the routers terminal output!

how do you do this with LINUX!!! PLEASE HELP ME
