Console application? (e.g. Hyperterminal)


I just installed Fedora4 (Gnome desktop) and it seems to be working fine. I have the need to access some Cisco routers via serial port console access. In Windows, I had used either Hyperterminal or SecureCRT, but I can't find a similar application in Gnome that will allow me simply to access the serial port with 9600/n/8/1 etc.

Can someone enlighten me how to do it in Fedora (it's probably buried somewhere), or recommend an application to install that will allow me console access into the routers?
