I work with the Sandpoint via minicom, and upload the files via
ascii-xfr. In minicom I give it the command 'sb -k 38400', then change
the speed in minicom (Alt-P G Enter; may be mistaken, reciting from
memory), and then type on the command line 'ascii-xfr -svn file >
/dev/ttyS0' . It then uploads the file fine at 38400. (You have to
make sure the file has Unix-style newlines, though.)
