Thanks for your replies. How can I set the ttys corresponding to ralt-Fx? /etc/inittab says nothing about which alt key is in use. Also, will these key combos ever conflict with any program's builtin macros? Thanks again. Aaron Brick. -- TO UNSUBSCRIBE FROM THIS MAILING LIST: e-mail the word "unsubscribe" to email@example.com .
