I've been playing around with this script, and I don't understand how
this effects each of the tty screens.  I've tried using "fbset -fb
/dev/..." to see if/how that works, but I don't have a /dev/vc/
directory and if I use /dev/fb0-6 I get "No such device", and if I use
/dev/tty0-6 I get "Invalid argument"

Perhaps if someone can explain how this script works, or suggest
something similar I'll be able to run with it.
