Here is the newbie again!  I am learning how to use the BB UARTs.  I am 
working on the example at

The  minicom commands are not working for me.

   1. #first terminal window:
   2. minicom -b 9600 -D /dev/ttyO1
   4. #second terminal window:
   5. minicom -b 9600 -D /dev/ttyO2
I modified the program slighty thinking I could setup UART1 and UART2, 
cross the RX/TX of UART 1 and UART 2 as per the directions.

Since I can't get the minicom to work for me is there another way I test 
everything is working?

Here is my program in Python:

import Adafruit_BBIO.UART as UART
import serial


#tty1 RX = P9_26   TX = P9_24
ser = serial.Serial(port = "/dev/tty1", baudrate=9600)
#tty2 RX = P9_22   TX = P9_21
ser = serial.Serial(port = "/dev/tty2", baudrate=9600)
if ser.isOpen():
        print "Serial is open!"
        print "Great Job"
ser.write("Hello World!")

# Eventually, you'll want to clean up, but leave this commented for now,
# as it doesn't work yet

I am expecting to be able to transmit and receive: "Hello Word!"  right?

Thanks in advance,
