Were you using the same machine with hyperterm?
Use dmesg and setserial to check the if your serial is initialized,
enabled and set up properly. There is no magic really with minicom if
your hardware is working and setup properly.
Vivek has nice simple tutorial, you probably know that one already.
http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/connect-soekris-single-board-computer-using-minicom.html 
Run minicom with -s and select Filenames and paths, then F - Logging
options and make sure you can see minicom.log and B,C=yes.
Then save a dfl and exit once still connected to the switch.
You should see:

Welcome to minicom
2.5                                                    
OPTIONS:
I18n                                                                
Compiled on Feb 24 2011,
11:25:53.                                           
Port /dev/ttyS0                                                                                                                                        
Press CTRL-A Z for help on special keys 

Now press Ctrl-A L to capture the session to the file and then press
Ctrl-A F to send a break. See if you will be able to connect. If not, in
you ~ should be a minicom capture log, try to see if there is anything
in it.
