I suggest that you try with another standard serial connector, until
you find a suitable one.

Following instructions, it's a standard serial PC cable, but I have
had to test three different cables on my SS4000-E to find one suitable
enough. With the first two, I only get garbage in minicom, exactly
like you describe.

Finaly, all was good with the tird. The settings for minicom are
115200 bps, 8N1 (defaults).

Once you'll resolve the serial console problem, you can try to install
Debian by loading the installer by tftp if the .pkg doesn't work.

I've some notes from before and during my installation if you want.
