While you are in X, use CTRL-ALT-F?, out of X it is
just ALT-F?.  Be careful because sometimes the
CTRL and ALT keys "stick", so you have to hit the
keys to "unstick" them.

Try running xterm from one of your "shells".

Why do you always put this in your e-mails?  Isn't it
obvious?  A lot of times I ignore your questions, because
this annoys me so!  I am sure I am not alone here - I would
say your chance of getting a responce is less with this
here than without it.
