No, it is almost the opposite thing. Serial console is to run the machine
with no video card or keyboard using a serial port. What you want is the
program you use to connect to that serial port.
Linux usually comes with one or more of kermit, seyon and minicom, with
seyon being the closest to Hyperterminal due to it's GUI-ness.
However, none of these work like Hyperterminal, they work better. For
instance your screen won't slow to a crawl when doing an ascii upload and
the vt100 emulation will work correctly.
