Second Terminal Keystrokes

What are they keystrokes to open up a second login/terminal session and switching between them when running the command prompt only ?

(usually) To switch from a X Windows to a virtual console, press 'CTRL-ALT-<F1 thru F6>' to switch between virtual consoles press 'ALT-<F1 thru F6>' (and on some systems the 'windows key' will work too). To switch back to X Windows press ALT-F7.
