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..
