To hook up the Flyswatter2 and the BeagleBone, you will need:

Connect the 20 Pin Ribbon Cable to the Flyswatter2.

Connect one end of the 20-pin end ribbon cable to the Flyswatter2's JTAG interface.

Connect the 20-pin Ribbon Cable to the ARM20CTI20 Adapter Board.

Connect the other end of the 20 pin ribbon cable into the ARM20CTI20 adapter. Your cable most likely has a raised nub on the head to force it into the correct position which matches a notch on the adapter. If it doesn't, align Pin 1 on the ribbon cable (marked with a red stripe) with the pin marked as 1 on the adapter.

Connect the 20-piARM20CTI20 adapter to to BeagleBone.

Next, connect the ARM20CTI20 adapter connected to the ribbon cable to the 20 pin connector that has been added to the underside of the BeagleBone.

Plug in the Serial Cable.
