Hi just wondering if you know how if you can use Ctrl-Alt-F* in Mandrake 9.0 Rc2 when you want to tab out of X

Im running this in VMWare maybe that has something to do with it

ctrl-alt-f1 through f5 for tty1 through 5, then ctrl-alt-f7 back to X. works fine.

Double check VMWare config to see if it took over key sequence if it doesn't work.
