    What they said about /etc/securetty is correct. Make sure there's a 'console' entry.
    We the willing, led by the unknowing, have been doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much with so little for so long that we are now qualified to do just about anything with almost nothing.

    Okay okay already! Just tried, securetty was blank, added vc/1 through vc/6 and it worked fine. I guess I'll add "console" for thouroughness, and the TTYs... If I was to use Telnet or SSH in the future, which entries would I have to add? (I probably will never have to, my current DSL modem is unlikely to ever work with *nix.) Thanks.
