Why don't you use Synaptic to install minicom?

Instead of using the CD, have you tried installing minicom from the internet (using Synaptic)?

Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic Synaptic

Figure out how to use it. It will save you many headaches.

1. The PS/2 problem is a bug in Fedora. Go back to Linux 2.6.18. See these links:
