Bug#2341: Install problems

David Silber:
   > A second virtual console.

Bruce Perens:
   Tiny init just got bigger. I'll look at it - it probably won't add
   more than a few hundred bytes.

Note: if tiny init isn't up to this, you could spawn a getty on the
other ttys using some other means.  They wouldn't automatically
respawn, but most sessions don't last so long that this is a problem.
If you don't need to write to stdin (e.g. more), you don't even need
getty -- just spawn sh with stdin and stdout redirected from the
appropriate tty.

[Not complete suggestions -- mostly food for thought.]
