On UNIX machines, the ``console'' is the traditional place for system
messages to pop up on.  FreeBSD comes preconfigured with 4 virtual
consoles, and this first one (ttyv0) is the one where messages
appear.  Login in from one of the others, which can be reached with
ALT+F[1-4].

        ALT+F1 -> ttyv0
        ALT+F2 -> ttyv1
        ALT+F3 -> ttyv2
        ALT+F4 -> ttyv3
