Multiple minicom sessions?

Is it possible to setup a linux based console server? I am trying to login to multiple cisco routers and switches at once in a cisco lab environment.

Sorry not sure if this is a networking question?

minicom is typically used to talk to serial devices or modems. If you have multiple serial ports and multiple modems, you can have a separate minicom session for each one. How do you login for a single session?
