Initialize Extreme Networks Summit X460-24t switch using minicom

Our company bought X460-24t switches, and we need to initialize them and configure management IPs. We connected their console cables with a Fedora 14 server attached 9pins, rs232 port, and powered them on.
Install minicom on the server
# yum install minicom
Configure port
# minicom -s
When the menu appeared, select “Serial port setup”, and set “Serial Device” to “/dev/ttyS0”, “Bps/Par/Bits” to “9600 8N1”.
Then select “Exit” to enter the switches.
