Actually, Virtual consoles are (well) documented, along with other
Linux features in the vast array of linux-documentation-project and
HOWTO's available at you local linux mirror, i.e., see section 3.2.3
Virtual consoles in "Linux Installation and Getting Started" by Matt

os's is its extensive documentation.  Please RT(very Fine)M.
