console cable for catalyst 5500

I have just acquired 2 catalyst 5500's. I have a Cisco rollover cable that I have used to console into the 1200 series wireless access points and used it on 2 catalyst 2900 xl's, but I am unable to console into the 5500's. Does it require a different type of cable? Or different settings for the hyperterminal session?

You use a standard straight through cable to the console port, it goes to the standard rj45 -> db9/db25 com port. Also uses 2 stop bits.
