As Josiah said, minicom is probably the most popular serial communication
program out there. It's a console program, though. If you want a graphical
program then CuteCom ( http://cutecom.sourceforge.net/ ) is written with
Qt and looks like it should be good. I ought to play with it myself,
actually. minicom can be a pain to set up.
