 I've noticed that /dev/console is always tty1, so I never log onto
that console.  I leave it for messages on the rare occasions I'm not
using X, and login on one of the other vtty's.

 When I'm ready for it, I will begin to study the kernel code, and
will find what you're talking about.  Right now I need to concentrate
on my classes, I have a very full schedule.  I think I start C next
winter term or so, along with digital electronics and all that...  The
kernel will be more comprehensible with some knowledge background.
