"None" should be the correct option for flow control; that's what I have  
in my saved HyperTerminal profile for connecting to Sun boxen through the  
serial port.  I also set the terminal emulation to VT100 so I could have a  
known type (if you install Solaris in textmode, and select the wrong  
terminal type, the text gets a bit garbled when it redraws).
