Question vt100 emulation for Cisco console


I'm currently studying to become a Cisco CCNA and change my career to Networking and I'd like to use my laptop which is running Mandrake 8.0 to communicate via the console port on a Cisco 2500 router.However I don't know how to do this - in Windoze I have been using the Hyperterminal program to connect but I'd like to use my laptop instead.Can anyone help?
