How to access Cisco Router Through Console Port with Fedora Core 5

I am new bie in Linux. I just installed Fedora Core 5 on my PC and now want to play with. I am trying to configure my Cisco Router but since I do not have any IP address configure on the router, the only option left is Console. But I am unable to find software (Hyper terminal in Windows) that can allow me to access router.
YOur help is highly appreciated
