I get nothing when connecting my freshly made 9-pin nullmodem cable
between my PC and the Netwinder. I use minicom, and 115200 8N1 with
no flow control. Minicom says 'offline' in the lower right corner. I
expected it to go 'online' when the netwinder was turned on.

Eh, where is the RAM? I did not see any RAM when I opened the box.
Do I need to remove the HD to find the socket?

Not even sure if the PCs serial ports are working. Do I need modules
loaded with a 2.4.16 kernel? There is no serial ports listed in
/proc/interrupts, only /proc/ioports. I tried lo laod generic_serial,
but it did not have any effect.
Any clues to spare?
