Thanks Andrew and Good Luck Mossy... I'll have to set my other system up with it when I get home also.
With my work system I try not to mess with too much but it sure looked like that would work for both Console and X modes.
I always jump to the keybad and start typing in a ip number etc and *@#)(%*#) starts popping up (smile) and then when i'm in the VI editor it triggers another screen instead of turning it on... I hate that! It's way nicer with it turned on!
