multiple copies of getty running Newbie #61


I see in top that there are always copies of getty running - 4 copies 
that I can see all owned by root.

Is this normal?

I thought getty was to listen on the modem for incoming calls, and since 
that is not going to happen perhaps I should unistall this, or is there a 
way to temporarily disable this action

Help always appreciated
