minicom - the standard for serial clients

Trust me - you'll never go back to Hyperterminal again after using a real serial terminal app!

Thanks! Well, just one more thing, how do I use the commands? It says "Ctrl-A Z for help" but it don't do anything when I press those keys. And I want to know how to quit minicom.
