You will need to by a "null modem cable". Check the available Com ports on you PC to determine the connector required e.g. I use 9pinF to 9pinF:


OpenBSD
[com port 0]
|
|
[null modem cable]
|
|
[com port 0]
Windows/OpenBSD dual boot


Then in Windows, start hyperterminal and chose to connect "Direct to com0" with settings:
Bits per second = 9600
Data bits = 8
Parity = None
Stop bits = 1


Better still, go buy "Absolute OpenBSD" by Michael W. Lucas - craking read!


Cheers
