Are you saying that the firmware doesn't display properly or the Linux

If its the firmware my only advice is to try several different settings and
see if you can get anything other than 9600 to work. If you can then you
can try turning it up.

If you're referring to the Linux console, you'll need to edit the serial
terminal lines(they start with "T") in /etc/inittab and change the speed
there to match firmware.
