That looks right except I thought it should be ttyS0 and ttyS1 but
it may be different if you are running a really old kernel. On
some versions you used /dev/cua0 to call out, /dev/ttyS0 for
logins.  Do you get any error when you try to use minicom to
access the device?  The TR led should come on in any case
if you have the right device name.   If the comm port connectors
aren't directly on the motherboard there is also some chance
that the wires go to the wrong headers so try using the
'wrong' device name too.
