Well, a while back, I posted about getting a Network Peripherals KeyStone24MG, and now I have a 9-pin RS-232 cable to connect via console. Now what do I do? I connect with hyperterminal on COM-1, and it only shows a white screen :/

I've never worked with or heard of this switch company. You'll need to get the pinouts for the serial port on that switch to make sure it's not a custom type configuration. Some switches require a null modem cable. Some require a custom cable only available through the manufacturer or through building a custom cable (that's provided if you have the pinouts).
