Comment out the following lines in /etc/inittab:
1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty1
2:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty2
3:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty3
4:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty4
5:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty5
6:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty6


P.S. Next time, please don't put essential info for your question only in 
the Subject of the mail. The subject is too long and error messages in a 
subject are hard to read, especially if they are from multiple lines.
