Looking for information on how to use minicom

Does anyone know a good web source for information on using minicom?

I am running mandrake 9.1 and I am trying to use mincom to accsess a Cisco 2500 router through a console port from my second serial port (ttys1). I am a newbi to linux, routers, cisco and networking.

Very good question. . . =-}
I've used minicom for so long that I don't remember how I learned it.
Anyway, the best documentation I could find is the man page, which actually has a fair amount of information on how to use minicom.
