Hi Peter and Simon,
I did that and I got "Error Couldn't find package Minicom"  If I need to be on the internet for this then I am going in circles.

Hi Chris,

The complexites fine with me. However I need to know were to find these
Hyperterminal equivalent programs in a default load of 64 bit Ubuntu 8.  I
have had a poke around  in accessories and system but I don't see them.

You nedd to install minicom, as it is not installed by default. If you using the synaptic package manager, it is under the 'Communication' menu. Alternatively, "sudo apt-get install minicom" in the command line will install it.
