Thanks, I got it working. I was wonder if you (or someone else on the
list :) knows why when I logout of X the console is full of /'s? It
still works but it isn't very usable (I'm using the vesa driver in case
that helps)

I thought this would be easy to I just had a script in /etc/init.d/ that

console -d vga -d pc_kbd --repeat=/dev/kbd -d generic_speaker /dev/vcs

and when it ran at S99 I got a blank screen, does this command require
me to login? Or do I need to run something else first?
