    Here's what I did.

    0. insmod mdacon

    1. make sure you have a /dev/tty13 with the right numbers

    2a. add to /etc/inittab 9:5:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty13 linux
    2b. kill -HUP init

    3a. edit /usr/lib/kbd/keytables, and change your .map so
    keycode 59 = F1 F11 Console_13
    control keycode 59 = F1
    alt keycode 59 = Console_1
    control alt keycode 59 = Console_1
    shift alt keycode 59 = Console_13
    3b. loadkeys

    4. press alt-ctrl-f1

    If that doesn't work.. I had to play with the switches of my mda (actually
    a ATI Wonder) card to make it work.. I wonder if I could get documentation
    of those switches..
